ABOUT US

 For over 30 years the Bowman-Francis Ministry team has ministered across the Black Diaspora

with the hopes of liberating black people from the mental and spiritual ghettos that can

hold us back from the grace of God. 

 

"One of the essential goals of the Bowman-Francis Ministry is to ensure that the people they encounter understand the fundamentals of Catholicism. “We can’t assume that just because people have been baptized that they know the faith and can articulate the faith,” said Fr. Chester Smith, SVD.

"But grasping the core values of Catholicism is just the beginning. There’s also a need to engage Black Catholics and help them find their place in the Church.” said Fr. Charles Smith, SVD. 

With a wide variety of religions to consider, the Bowman-Francis Ministry Team acknowledges that those seeking out faith have a lot of choices and the Catholic Church needs to meet their

needs if it is going to retain and grow its following.
