On Saturday, Nov. 19, 2022, SCNs Sangeeta Ayithamattam, Susan Gatz, Brenda Gonzales, Michelle Grgurich, Marlene Lehmkuhl, and Marilyn Shea attended the 34th Anniversary African American Catholic History Celebration at St. Monica Parish, Bardstown, Kentucky. The Archdiocese of Louisville Office of Multicultural Ministry African American Ministries sponsored the program.

Archbishop Shelton J. Fabre presided over the inspiring prayer service, including a Call to Worship, a Calling Forth of the elders, young adults, and youth; a Litany of Freedom; readings from scripture; a Homily given by the Archbishop; and remarks by the Pastor, Steven Reeves, and Annette Mandley-Turner. The gospel choir offered several spirited selections. The celebration continued with a light lunch in the church hall. Some Presentation Academy graduates joined the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth for a photo to mark the occasion.

    I want to know “What colour is God’s skin?” Something to consider at such celebrations.
