Black Catholics at congress urged to ‘listen, learn, think, act and pray’

ORLANDO, Fla. — United by the words of the prophet of social justice, Catholic Church leaders urged black Catholics to become active, just disciples of Christ.

More than 2,000 converged on Orlando July 6-9 for the 12th National Black Catholic Congress in which speakers — clergy, lay and religious — addressed a variety of topics and concerns facing black communities and families, while urging delegates to take an active, enthusiastic role in living out the Gospel as just disciples of Christ.
