November - Black Catholic History Month

The Lodge provides a wonderful space in this historical building, which provides excellent opportunities that encourage diversity and creativity in the cultural, fine, and theatrical arts.
In September of 2021, Montgomery County Council held its inaugural African Heritage Month Commemoration with the theme: "Resiliency of African Businesses during the COVID-19 Pandemic.". This was mainly online via Zoom and subsequently shared on their website. This year the Council commemorated African Heritage Month by recognizing and celebrating the contributions of individuals who have brought aspects of African culture to the County, contributing to the region’s diversity and rich cultural traditions. This year’s theme is: “The African Influence on America”; showcasing African art, dance, food, fashion and music in the County.
