About this title

Synopsis:

Since the early days of the Republic, Washington has nurtured an increasingly prosperous and articulate community of black Catholics. For much of that time the spiritual welfare of these citizens as well as their material aspirations centered on St. Augustine's parish.
Morris J. MacGregor traces the history of St. Augustine's from its beginning as a modest chapel and school to its recent years as one of the city's most imposing and active churches. For more than a century, the congregation has counted among its members many of the intellectual and social elite of black society as well as impoverished newcomers struggling with the perils of urban life. This socially diverse membership, enhanced by a constant stream of visitors of all races and classes drawn by the beauty of the church and the artistry of its musicians, has made St. Augustine's an exemplar of Christian brotherhood.
The book presents in considerable detail the history of race relations in church and state since the founding of the Federal City.

About the Author:

Morris J. MacGregor is the author of several books, including A Parish for the Federal City: St. Patrick's in Washington, 1974-1994 and Integration of the Armed Forces, 1940-1965.
