Black History Celebration at Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Shreveport held a Black History Month Celebration on February 22. This Black History Month Celebration honored Sr. Thea Bowman, Franciscan Sister of Perpetual Adoration. Our guest speaker was Fr. Maurice J. Nutt from Chicago, IL (third from left).  He shared with all how he came to know Sr. Thea, his teacher and dear friend. She fought for the Black Catholic identity in the Catholic churches and also justice for everyone.
