Black History & Heritage Outreach Ministry

The Black History Heritage Outreach Ministry is an evangelistic approach seeking to share our culture and ideas with the entire Christian Church community. We share planned spiritual and educational programs each year educating the school and church community about African American Saints and the contributions they have made enriching our the Black Catholic faith.

We want to make known the significant contributions that African American people have made over the years by being humble servants of God. There is richness in our Black experience that is expressed through our Catholic faith.

fathersBlack History Month is always celebrated at Holy Family with special guest speakers, celebrants and the celebration of the Mass with visiting Gospel Choirs and a potluck community supper.

Members are encouraged to share their spiritual gifts and talents as well as shine a light with the church community. We sponsor annually a Martin Luther King mass, spring bake sale, and support a food booth at Holy Family Fun Family International festival.

Black spiritually is a gift of Joy; this joy is a sign of our faith! Our theme song is: “We’ve Come this Far By Faith”.

New members are always welcome. For more information, please contact co-chairs, Beverly Carroll at cmcbn78@verizon.net, 703-929-4465 or Pat Brooks at pabgrace@mac.com, 703-590-1859.
