Founded in 1791 - Erected  in  1858 - Became a Minor Basilica in 1991



Our mission is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people, regardless of race, language or culture. Nourished by the Eucharist, we seek to accomplish this by drawing on our rich African-American heritage of Spirit-filled worship, Christ-centered service, and fellowship that recalls our common Father. 


                                                 This is our call. This is our mission.
