YC Receives Grant from Catholic Negro American Mission Board

York Catholic is grateful to be awarded a $2,000 grant from the Catholic Negro American Mission Board to support the education and professional development programs for our faculty and staff.

The Black and Indian Mission Collection (BIMC) exists to help communities build the Church and preach the Gospel of Jesus among the African American, Native American, and
Alaska Native people of God.  Every year, it is the amazing generosity of Catholic faithful just like you who enable the Black and Indian Mission Office to support the following important priorities:

  • Enlivening Parish Life & Catechesis
    Grant funds from the BIMC enables us to support parish-based catechetical programs. We help form and train catechists who will form children to be disciples of Jesus in the world, and get bibles and catechisms in kids’ hands so they can learn the ways of the Lord and take their place around His altar.
  • Helping Educators Reach Kids
    With your contribution to the BIMC, you’ll help support good teachers to help African American and Native American kids learn, like Sheryl Ashley at Saint Augustine Indian Mission in Winnebago, Neb. Saint Augustine kids recently made a 60% improvement in reading scores in three years.
  • Encouraging Vocations
    We need men and women living the consecrated life to give witness to a radical Christian life. We need priests in order to have the Eucharist! Supporting the BIMC enables us to help diocesan communities encourage vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
  • Empowering Evangelizers
    BIMC grant funds help offices of Black Catholic and Native American ministries to sponsor events and formation to encourage the Christian life in culturally appropriate ways.
