Black History Month, observed nationally in February, is a time to learn about the contributions of so many African Americans and to create awareness about the injustices suffered and honor the heroic struggle that still continues. The Brooklyn/Queens Diocese is celebrating a Mass of Thanksgiving on February 28 at 3PM at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph. It will be televised live on NET TV. All are encouraged to watch and learn.
