African American evangelization conference to empower youth, youth ministers

.- A Catholic conference for African Americans promises to equip and empower participants, especially youth and youth ministers, with what is needed to be, “sons and daughters of light.”

The Interregional African American Catholic Evangelization Conference will be held in Atlanta Aug. 4-6 at the Atlanta Hilton Hotel. More than 1,000 people are expected to participate.

The theme of the conference - Gettin' on the Good Foot, Runnin' to the Kingdom - is inspired by the prophet Isaiah, who calls the people to return to Jerusalem and to work and wait for the promises of God to be fulfilled.

Workshops related to evangelization, catechesis, spirituality, relationships, youth ministry, and critical health issues will be offered. In addition, in preparation for the 2007 National Black Catholic Congress, there will be a youth summit and a young adult roundtable to create a national agenda for outreach with black Catholic youth.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Dioceses of Raleigh, Toledo, Memphis, Lexington, Charleston, Cleveland, Galveston-Houston; the Archdioceses of Louisville, Cincinnati and Atlanta; the National Association of Black Catholic Administrators; Knights of Peter Claver, Inc.; and the National Black Catholic Congress.
