Black Catholic Revival, November 16-18, 2012

African American Cultural Awareness Ministry

of Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, Los Angeles,

to sponsor a three-day “Faith on Fire” Revival

featuring renowned Rev. Anthony Bozeman S.S.J. of New Orleans

Friday, November 16 through Sunday, November 18, 2012

 

Los Angeles, CA (October 20, 2012) – The African American Cultural Awareness Ministry of Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church, a Los Angeles Archdiocese parish in Jefferson Park with significant active membership of African descent, will sponsor a three-day “Faith on Fire” revival from Friday, November 16 through Sunday, November 18, 2012, featuring Reverend Anthony Michael Bozeman S.S.J., pastor of St. Raymond & St. Leo the Great parish in New Orleans, Louisiana.

 

The “Faith on Fire” revival advances the purpose of Holy Name’s African American Cultural Awareness Ministry, which was formed in 1985 to raise awareness of African American and African American Catholic gifts of history, culture, and spirituality through liturgical celebrations, prayer, and fellowship within and beyond the parish.

 

“The Revival is important at this time because we are at a critical point in history when we must keep alive our cultural and historical presence within the Catholic Church,” says Deacon Douglass Johnson, a co-chair of the Ministry. “As a priest in the Josephite Society of the Sacred Heart, Fr. Bozeman represents that community of priests in the United States exclusively engaged in advancing the social and spiritual doctrine of the Church in the Black community,” he concludes. Monica Lewis, a co-chair and founding member of the Ministry, adds that “Fr. Bozeman will bring passionate preaching that can renew the purpose, focus, and enthusiasm within the Black Catholic Community of Holy Name and the greater Los Angeles area.”

 

The “Faith on Fire” revival highlights Holy Name’s annual celebration of Black Catholic History Month. In 1990, the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus (NBCC) selected November as the month to celebrate the history and legacy of Black Catholics in the United States, as well as to commemorate those ancestors and Black saints from the motherland and throughout the African Diaspora.

Eighty percent of all families registered as parishioners at Holy Name of Jesus Church are of African descent, coming from the United States, the Caribbean, Central, South and Latin America, and Africa.

 

Revival activity at Holy Name begins Friday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m., and continues on Saturday, November 17 at 6:30. On Sunday, November 18, there will be a reception at 12:30 p.m., followed by the revival at 3:30 p.m. The African American Cultural Awareness Ministry is co-chaired by Deacon Douglass Johnson, Catherine Brown (Director of Religious Education), and founding lay minister Monica Lewis. Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Church is located at 1955 West Jefferson Boulevard, Los Angeles, California 90018. The pastor is Rev. Paul Spellman.
