Be strengthened by the witness of the saints who have gone before us!
This bundle includes a six-pack of prayer cards honoring six African American Catholics who are on the formal path to sainthood in the Catholic Church: Venerable Pierre Toussaint (d. June 30, 1853); Mother Henriette Delille (d. Nov. 16, 1862); Mother Mary Lange (d. Feb. 3, 1882); Fr. Augustus Tolton (d. July 9, 1897); Julia Greeley (d. June 7, 1918); and Sr. Thea Bowman (d. March 30, 1990).
The series evokes the contributions of Black Catholics in the United States, who, through their witness to the faith, their great charity toward others, and their love for God in the midst of various sufferings, reflect the light of Christ in today’s world.
Use these beautiful prayer cards to deepen your faith! Share these prayer cards with friends, family, or get copies for your parish community. These prayer cards would also be a great resource for diocesan programs, parish faith formation, and religious education.
NOTE: Prayer cards are normally sold in packs of 25. This bundle includes 150 cards total: one pack for each of the six men and women.
