The National Black Catholic Seminarians Association, (NBCSA) seeks to contribute to the wellbeing of candidates for priesthood and religious life, with an emphasis on Black American, African, Afro-Caribbean, and Afro-Latino candidates preparing to serve the Church in the United States and its territories. The interest of the NBCSA, however, extends to the broader formation community as it seeks to promote knowledge of, and apostolic works in, the diverse Black Catholic community in the United States. Promoting vocations to priesthood and religious life has become central to the identity and mission of NBCSA.
We are an affiliate entity of the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus. We also cooperate with the National Black Sisters Conference, the National Black Catholic Congress, the National Association of Black Catholic Administrators in the United States and its territories.
