A great way to celebrate Black History month, and introduce students to these heroes of the Catholic faith!
This lesson highlights 8 black saints and holy people (declared Blessed, Venerable, or Servant of God.) Students will learn about 4 men and 4 women, including:
Saint Martin de Porres
Saint Anthony of Categero
Blessed Isidore Bakanja
Saint Charles Lwanga
Saint Josephine Bahkita
Venerable Henriette Delille
Servant of God Mother Mary Lange
Blessed Marie-Clémentine Nengapeta
There is an image and short biography of each person, and a matching activity to review the lesson.
