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.
