African Ancestry Ministry

African Ancestry Ministry and Evangelization is established by the Diocese of Raleigh to foster the mission of the Roman Catholic Church:

  • Spread the Gospel
  • Celebrate the Sacraments
  • Form a faith community

To do this ministry, we must create an atmosphere in which individuals of African Ancestry:

  • Can maintain their identity
  • Heighten their visibility
  • Enhance their lives as Catholics

The ministry is concerned with nurturing those in the faith, reconciling those fallen away from the faith, and offering a church home to the un-churched through conversion to the Catholic faith.
