The 11th annual Sisters Home Visitors of Mary Gala was held at the beautiful and historic Sacred Heart Seminary on October 4, 2015. The evening’s wonderful and fitting theme was Celebration of Black Catholic life in Detroit.
Three special people were honored, each of whom has long shared the Home Visitors’ vision of enculturating the Gospel and taking it into peoples’ homes:
Karla Cole Green continues the funeral home started by her father which has served African-American families and parishes in Detroit for many years. She underwrote the Josephite calendars that brought Black religious art into many homes and religion classes. See the full testimonial to Karla by clicking here.
John Fleming, a professional teacher, taught in HVM Vacation Bible Schools, served St. Benedict the Moor parish, and preserves the Black Catholic Story from his alma mater, Xavier University. See the full testimonial to John by clicking here.
Marjorie Gabriel-Burrow has provided leadership and direction to the superb Detroit Gospel Choir for 40 years. See the full testimonial to Marjorie by clicking here.
