Conclusion Notes Bibliography Index
I am grateful to see more books on the history of Black Catholics in the United States, especially those who have become priests or who have entered religious life. This book by Diane Batts Morrow describes the origins of the Oblate Sisters of Providence. I, myself, am a Black Catholic priest and am very grateful to Batts Morrow for bringing this inspiring story to light.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
