OBCM Mission Statement

As members of the Roman Catholic Church, we proclaim our mission to accept the responsibility of being both Black and Catholic. We continue to reaffirm our spiritual bond as we share our faith, love, cultural treasures and heritage. We endeavor to empower Black Catholics for the purpose of reaching out to the Black community within the Diocese of Phoenix, and to assume initiative and leadership in providing opportunities for meeting our religious needs.

We shall continue to seek fulfillment within the Catholic Church. We will be untiring in our efforts to ensure that all Black members of the Church are accepted always in the Body of Christ. As God’s children, we believe we will be accorded every opportunity for spiritual fulfillment and full acceptance as the Church is one and home to us all.
