SAN DIEGO — Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano blessed a space at Christ the King Catholic Church in San Diego dedicated to the six African American candidates for sainthood, accompanied by Deacon Marvin Threatt.

The Diocesan Commission for African American Catholics, which organized the dedication on Nov. 20, is participating in a national campaign petitioning the Holy See to consider canonizing all six collectively as one body.
