Servant of God Msgr. Bernard Quinn was an Irish-American known for his fight against racial injustice. He’s already considered a saint by many and his legacy carries on today – not only around the Diocese of Brooklyn but also at St. Peter Claver Church, the parish he founded for African-American Catholics.

The Brooklyn priest who has been spearheading Msgr. Quinn’s cause for canonization, Msgr. Paul Jervis, joined Currents News to discuss the new documentary film premiering about the life of Msgr. Quinn.
