History of Unity Explosion
Unity Explosion began as a gathering in 1989 in Dallas with the vision to liturgically recognize, embrace, and share the gifts that American Catholics of African descent bring to the universal church. The mission of the conference has grown to provide an experience that addresses the expressed leadership, ministerial, catechetical, liturgical and evangelization needs of families, particularly those of African descent.History of Unity Explosion
