Cathedral celebrates African-American liturgy
Members of the Knights of St. Peter Claver joined at the Cathedral of Christ the Light on Nov. 9 to worship and celebrate the African-American experience of liturgy, music and ritual, above. At right, Rev. Jay Matthews, pastor at St. Benedict Parish, Oakland, was the homilist, and Rev. Ray Sacca, cathedral rector, presider at the Mass. Music was provided by Da' Young People's Choir, directed by Leonard D. Pete, music director of St. Benedict Church in Oakland. A reception followed Mass. Several parishes were celebrating National Black Catholic Month, November.
