Desegregating The Alter, The Josephites and the struggle for Black Priest 1871-1960 by Stephen J. Ochs.
When I attended St. Mary’s Academy in Inglewood, California, we had a Black-American Priest. Now I only see African Priest, real Africans, not African-Americans. (Ha!!!!!Ha!!!!!). I pray that other Black-America’s that are interested in becoming Priest are protected, guarded, and shielded by the Holy Ghost to enter the vocation they are called to.
