Cyprian Rowe; Left Church Over Treatment of Blacks, Returned

By Matt Schudel
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, December 13, 2008; Page B06

Cyprian L. Rowe, 74, an outspoken critic of what he considered the Catholic Church's inattention to racial minorities and who had a public break and reconciliation with the church, died Nov. 25 at the Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care in Towson, Md. He had Alzheimer's disease.

Dr. Rowe was a member of the Marist Brothers, a Catholic order devoted to teaching, and spent most of his career as a professor of social work and African American culture.

From 1978 to 1983, Dr. Rowe was executive director of two church-affiliated groups in Washington, the National Office for Black Catholics and the National Black Catholic Clergy Caucus.

He became known nationwide for his outspoken writings and speeches about the place of African Americans in the Catholic Church and the paucity of black leaders in the church hierarchy.

Not LA but...
