Location: Washington, DC, District of Columbia, United States

I attend to the pastoral needs of African American Catholics, working with and through Catholic arch/dioceses and national organizations. Primary duties include facilitating intercultural competency training for ministers and otherwise representing the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Secretariat of Cultural Diversity in the Church. In my parish, St Teresa of Avila, I am active in catechetical, liturgical and social justice ministry. Also, I'm involved in empowerment projects in my local community. With humility and through the grace of God, I am learning and doing and learning some more. In addition to ministry efforts, I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, travelling and the arts. I consider myself politically progressive, spiritually charismatic and authentically pro-life. I am a widow, have 3 wonderful young people, (a daughter and two sons) and enjoy a precious cat named Naomi.
