Holy men and women are the truest heroes to emulate. If you don't know the stories of these men and women, you're missing out.

The saints are our friends as well as intercessors. For 2019, we invite you to get to know and befriend one of the many Black Catholic heroes who have built up the Church. Here are eight of them.
