The Black Community, Dioceses and Diocesan School Systems.
Dayton Univ., OH. Office of Educational Services.
At the request of the National Office for Black Catholics, the University of Dayton recently conducted two surveys of Catholic dioceses and diocesan school systems which have significant numbers of black Catholics and black non-Catholics. The diocesan survey attempted to assess the involvement of the dioceses with blacks, the participation of blacks in diocesan activities, and types of programs designed, directly or indirectly, for blacks. The school survey attempted to assess, similarly, the involvement of diocesan school systems with blacks and black participation in the school systems, as well as the processes being employed to close or consolidate schools in black communities. Of sixty dioceses contacted for each survey, 23 responded to the former and 47 to the latter. Data from these responses are presented in this report. A copy of the first survey is included with enumerated responses to questions regarding black parishes, blacks employed in religious and non-religious positions, black representation on diocesan committees, recruitment of blacks for religious vocations, and community outreach programs. The second survey is also attached, with data enumerated on Catholic school closings, racial composition of areas in which schools have closed or consolidated, reasons for closings, and current black enrollment in Catholic schools.
