On Kujenga weekends, the groups of young boys and girls break into groups and dive deep into the foundations of their faith through a variety of activities, including small group discussions, a talent show, a Mass and praying the rosary together. They are encouraged to understand their faith so they can proudly profess how they are “authentically black and authentically Catholic.”
Greetings from sunny central Puerto Rico! I covered a week-long mission trip to Aibonito with a large group of young adults and youth from the Vicariate of Black Catholic Concerns’ Youth Ambassador Program.
Thirty-plus members of the Brooklyn Diocese’s Vicariate of Black Catholic Concern’s (VBCC) ambassador program arrived in Puerto Rico on July 1. Some of the members were out-of-state college students, and some, like Rajae Clarke, were returning to serve alongside their fellow youth ambassadors as alums of the program.
