About the Event

The granddaughter of slaves, Thea Bowman was the only African American

member of the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, and she transcended

racism to leave a lasting mark on U.S. Catholic life in the late 20th century.

The U.S. Catholic bishops endorsed her sainthood cause in 2018.
