The archdiocese of Miami recognizes that the Black Catholic Ministry brings to the Church of South Florida a rich cultural tradition and historic faith.

The Black Catholic Ministry, together with Movements of Black Catholics seek to provide spiritual, cultural, and social nourishment for Black Catholics; to enhance Black Catholic leadership; to welcome Blacks to join the Catholic Church; to help coordinate ongoing efforts with all faith communities. They also act as agents for the concerns of the Black community at large, assess the needs of the Black community and communicate these to the established Archdiocesan agencies; provide representation at the decision-making levels with the Archdiocese; represent the Archdiocese in state and national Black Catholic organizations and inform the Black Catholic community via materials, programs, and workshops on local, state, and national events.
