Effort to Advance Causes of Black Sainthood

Renee speaks with Dr. Emilie Leumas on Augustus Tolton and Henriette Dellile

Members of several Catholic groups are uniting their efforts in New Orleans as they push to strengthen the case for canonizing five African Americans. The event is to pray for the saint causes of the six African-American candidates already in progress as well as any future candidates. The six candidates include Mother Henriette De Lille of New Orleans, Pierre Toussaint of New York, Mary Elizabeth Lange of Baltimore, Father Tolton, Julie Greeley of Denver and Sister Thea Bowman of Canton, Mississippi.
