Fr. Kenneth Taylor, a priest of the Indianapolis Archdiocese, and Precious Blood Fr. Clarence Williams, who is currently stationed in the Diocese of Columbus, Ohio, were elected president and vice president, respectively, of the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus.
Elections took place at the organization’s meeting in Chicago, held during the July 28-Aug. 1 joint conference of the clergy caucus, the National Black Sisters’ Conference, the National Black Catholic Seminarians’ Association and the National Association of Black Catholic Deacons.
The National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus is an organization based in Montgomery, Ala., that brings together black Catholic priests and religious brothers, and deacons and their wives to provide mutual support and to advocate for the black community.
During the joint conference, more than 200 black priests, deacons, women religious and seminarians joined community members the evening of July 29 for a march for nonviolence in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood.
