“Father Augustus Tolton and the Black Catholic Experience in America,”

All are invited to virtually participate in a Zoom event entitled, “Father Augustus Tolton and the Black Catholic Experience in America.” This event will feature Reverend Stephen D. Thorne, Pastor of Saint Martin de Porres Parish. Father Thorne will share his reflections on the life of Father Augustus Tolton, the first African-American priest to be ordained in the United States, whose cause for canonization is under way. In sharing Tolton’s story, Father Thorne will also speak about the past and present experience of Black Catholicism in the United States and where he sees new opportunities for growth and renewal in the Church today.

The event is co-sponsored by the Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture. For more information or to register for the event, please visit  eventbrite.com/e/fathe….
