The African Family Heritage Mass is an annual eucharistic celebration with African cultural flavor. This annual celebration brings together all African Catholics, some non-Catholics and non-Africans in the archdiocese and beyond to share in our common heritage.
Different communities bring their cultural food to share with everyone at the reception hall after Mass. We have Catholics families from 19 African nations who live and worship in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Please come join us in the celebration our African cultural heritage. The Mass, celebrated by Auxiliary Bishop John J. McIntyre — and lots of food — are free.

You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
