While several Wiltonians leave town for tropical venues to vacation this summer, Father Reginald Norman of Our Lady of Fatima parish traveled to Orlando, Fla., for higher callings.
The 12th National Black Catholic Congress was held on July 6 and ran for three days. The congress is held every five years, has more than 200 attendees, and has the purpose of “discussing and developing plans for black Catholics,” according to Norman, who served as the Episcopal Vicar for African American Catholics at the congress. His role is to engage and evangelize African Americans. He was appointed by Bishop Frank Caggiano, who revamped the position from the Director of the Apostolate of African Americans, which was also filled by Norman by order of Bishop William E. Lori.
