Black Catholic History at Holy Trinity

Over the past year, a group of parishioners have been researching and publishing articles on the role of slavery, segregation, and race in Holy Trinity’s history. This special bulletin issue highlights excerpts of this important work and profiles on U.S. Black Catholic candidates for sainthood, as well as further invitations to pray and learn. The full history series may be found at the Holy Trinity History page.

The HT History Team joyfully welcomed Fr. Ray Kemp, Dena Grant, Sybil Williams, and Linda Gray to our parish on November 5 in celebration of Black History Month. Panelists shared reflections about the establishment of Black Catholic churches in DC. HT Committee members Paul Maco and Bernie Cook were also on the panel. Thanks to Paul and Lisa Maco the discussion was recorded and is available here.

On February 7, the HT History Team partnered with the Citizens Association of Georgetown so celebrate Black History Month. We welcomed historian Carroll Gibbs to share the rich Black history of Georgetown, as well performances by students from Duke Ellington School for the Arts. Watch the video

Parishioners for Others

Slavery, Segregation, and Race in Our Parish
We invite Holy Trinity parishioners and others to learn more about the role of slavery, segregation, and race in Holy Trinity’s history. We hope that, in throwing more light on our parish’s past, our work will open doors to reflecting on that past and on its implications for our present, and inspire our daily interactions with others. Visit our website to read the articles.
