Website Review: Father Augustus Tolton

A review based on:


"Many Catholics might not ever have heard of Fr. Augustus Tolton; but black Catholics most probably have. He was the first American diocesan priest of African descent, the son of slaves. After studying in Rome, because no American seminary would accept him, he was ordained for the Diocese of Quincy, in southern Illinois, and later came to Chicago to start a parish for black Catholics. He died young, at only 43 years of age; but most priests in the nineteenth century died before their fiftieth birthday. Fr. Tolton’s cause for sainthood is being introduced in the Archdiocese of Chicago." Francis Cardinal George, OMI

This website exists to promote the cause for canonization of Fr. Augustus Tolton.
