In 1990 the Colorado Springs Council for Black Catholics (CSCBC) formed under the auspices of Bishop Richard C. Hanifen as a council to enhance our identity as Afro-American Catholics doing God’s work, and to give one another strength, encouragement, and fellowship.

As such, we became involved in a number of activities which allow us to more actively share in doing our mission and to experience the spiritual growth we continually seek.

The council is diocese-wide.

Our patron saint is St. Martin de Porres.

The Acacia Tree is native to Africa; it is mentioned in the Bible in the Book of Exodus and in the Book of Isaiah. The wood of the tree was used to build the Ark of the Covenant. It is mentioned in Isaiah as a sign of the Messianic restoration in Israel. The Acacia Tree has deep roots and survives through drought, dryness and famine. It is a strong tree which provides shelter from the soaring heat of the sun for wild animals, and it also provides food and nourishment. Since biblical times, the Acacia Tree has been a symbol of stability and resilience. The tree is still found in many areas of Africa and has been a symbol of that land.
