The Claver family celebrates the life of Leah Chase and extends its condolences to the Chase family. Dooky Chase Restaurant has been our National Headquarter's Orleans Ave. neighbor for nearly 70 years. Thank you Mrs. Chase for your hard work, dedication, and faithful love of our people and communities! Leyah (Leah) Lange Chase (January 6, 1923 – June 1, 2019) was an American chef based in New Orleans, Louisiana. An author and television personality, she was known as the Queen of Creole Cuisine, advocating both African-American art and Creole cooking. Her restaurant, Dooky Chase, was known as a gathering place during the 1960s among many who participated in the Civil Rights Movement, and was known as a gallery due to its extensive African-American art collection. In 2018 it was named one of the 40 most important restaurants of the past 40 years by Food & Wine. Civil Rights leaders, both Black and White and including leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesse Jackson, were allowed to meet at Dooky Chase restaurant as well as the Knights of Peter Claver National Office building (at the offices of Bro. A.P. Tureaud) to plan, network, and socialize - against the law at the time. A car bomb exploded outside of the Chase restaurant as an intimidation factore, but Mrs. Chase was only more committed to playing her role in the movement. Read More

Chicagoland Knights, Ladies of Peter Claver: Stalwarts of the Catholic Church By Michelle Martin | Staff Writer April 24, 2019 The Knights and Ladies of Peter Claver have been stalwarts of the Catholic Church since the organization’s founding in the early 20th century, and the national fraternal organization of men, women and children is still going strong in several predominantly black parishes in the Archdiocese of Chicago. Members of the organization — which is technically independent of parishes, but whose members often have close ties to their faith communities — support their parishes financially, serve as lectors and extraordinary ministers of Communion. Their spirit of service and charity will be on display next year when the group holds its national convention in Oak Brook, Illinois. Read More
The head of the Oregon prison system is looking to make significant changes to the way the state views punishment, and she insists that Catholics and other people of faith have an important role to play. Colette Peters is the director of the Oregon Department of Corrections and a cradle Catholic. She is currently heading up a 10-year plan in the state that draws largely from the Norwegian prison system. The collaboration is part of the European Prison Project, which was initiated in 2017.

Washington D.C., Apr 16, 2019 / 12:06 am (CNA).- A bipartisan bill introduced in Congress last week would allow inmates in federal and state prisons to be eligible for Pell grants, to pay for college classes while they are in jail. Known as the “REAL Act,” the bill would repeal a 1994 Clinton-era ban on prisoners’ eligibility for the grants. The Senate bill was introduced April 9 by Senators Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii). The corresponding House bill was introduced by Congress members Jim Banks (R-Ind.), Danny Davis (D-Ill.), and French Hill (R-Ark.), and Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.). Read More
Washington D.C., Apr 12, 2019 / 05:54 pm (CNA).- Students at Georgetown University voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to pass a referendum that would create a new student fee each semester in order to create programming benefiting the descendants of the 272 slaves the Maryland Province of Jesuits sold in 1838. “The results of the referendum are as follows: 66.08% for yes (2541 votes), 33.92% for no (1304 votes). This means that the referendum passes,” tweeted the Georgetown University Students Association Election Commission on Thursday evening. According to the GUSA Election Commission, 57.9% of Georgetown students voted in the election. Read More
