Servant of God Father Augustus Tolton is the first Black Catholic priest in the United States, serving in Chicago until his death in 1897. His cause for sainthood in the Catholic Church is currently underway.
Bishop Joseph Perry of Chicago, postulator for Father Tolton’s canonization cause, is calling “Tolton” a production that will “inspire a new era of peace, hope and forgiveness in America.”
