Joyous liturgical music, in both Spanish and English, could be heard at St. Mark Church in Richmond Sept. 8 at a Mass celebrating the feast of St. Peter Claver that included participants from the Knights of St. Peter Claver and Women's Auxiliary. Pastor Rev. Ramiro Flores served as celebrant and Rev. Ken Hamilton, SVD, also the homilist, concelebrated.

Black Catholic History Month

Just as Americans set aside the month of February to celebrate the culture and contributions of African Americans throughout history, African American Catholics remember and honor their community and ministry of the past and present in the Catholic Church in November.

St. Patrick Parish in Oakland will celebrate Black Catholic History Month with several events. A revival is planned Nov. 16-18, and will feature Revs. Charles Smith, Chester Smith and Kenneth Hamilton, all members of the Divine Word Missionaries. The revival will begin at the 10:30 a.m. Mass Nov. 16. The Gospel Choir at St. Patrick will present a Gospel Music Festival beginning at 3:30 p.m. that day.

During each Sunday of November, there will be a Black Catholic history quiz in the church bulletin with prizes for those who can successfully answer correctly all the questions. St. Patrick is located at 1032 Peralta St., Oakland.
