Last Sunday I went to the celebration Mass for the 225th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. We are privileged to live in the first and oldest diocese in the country. Our history is rich with firsts: first African-American Congregation (St. Francis), first bishop (John Carroll), first seminary (St. Mary’s), first free Catholic School (Emmitsburg), first religious community for African American women (Oblates), first American born saint (Elizabeth Ann Seton). We’ve had some seconds too and maybe a few other numbers, but the point is that Baltimore has been at the center of Catholicism in this country.
It was here that the country held its councils in the 1800’s which produced such documents as the Baltimore catechism. The Bishops still regularly convene in Baltimore. So be proud to be a member of this Archdiocese. And pray that God bless us as we strive to bring the good news to the people who dwell here.
Thank you for your contributions for San Bartolo land for your support of the Basket Bingo for the Youth Group. With these funds we will be able to continue important outreach services.
