Some local parishioners are now on their way to a special trip from Brooklyn to Maryland thanks to the Vicariate of Black Catholic Concerns.

The group hosted a fundraiser over the weekend that will help send their members to the National Black Catholic Conference this summer.  

The vicariate, which works to ensure the voices of Black Catholics are heard, also honored Bishop Robert Brennan and Monsignor Paul Jervis.

The bishop was honored for wrapping up his first year of service to the community in Brooklyn and Queens, while Monsignor Paul Jervis was honored for a longer ministry.
