FutureChurch’s ‘Women Witnesses for Racial Justice’ event, celebrating Anna “Madre” Bates, at 7:00 p.m. EDT on Zoom

DATE AND TIME OF EVENT: May 11, 2021 at 7pm Eastern Time

Anna “Madre” Bates led a revolution of love in Detroit.  In spite of racial segregation in Catholic Churches, and racist obstacles placed by those in authority to her mission of serving Black Catholics, she founded a mission and a parish, Our Lady of Victory.  During this prayer service you will hear the witness of Black Catholic Women as they share the story of Anna “Madre” Bates and their own stories of facing racist obstacles as we pray, sing, and work together for racial and reparative justice in the Church and in the world.

“We raised so much awareness from our event, of both the ongoing Synod and of St. Phoebe and her ministry. Together, we learned of the power of the intercession of St. Phoebe, and how significant her feast day can be to carry the message of women’s roles in the Church.”

“The most meaningful parts of our celebration together included a standing ovation following the witness reflection, the power and strength of the reflection itself, and the procession at the start of mass. In the procession, young women carried in and presented symbols of St. Phoebe including an icon, the commission of St. Paul, a deacon’s stole and a pitcher of water to symbolize our shared baptism.”

Testigo
“Preaching on the Feast of St. Phoebe, and supporting and training other women to preach, was a joyful and invigorating experience. It is beautiful to see women claim the truth that they are called and gifted, and equally beautiful to see the People of God’s receptivity to women’s preaching, ministry, and leadership.”
