Kwanzaa is a week long African American holiday observed from December 26 through
January 1, which focuses on the traditional African values of family, community
responsibility, commerce and self improvement. The name Kwanzaa is derived
from the phrase, "matunda ya kwana" which means, "first fruits" in Swahili.

Cultural rituals celebrated in your parish and community, not just at Christmas time. The value centered principles of Kwanzaa are uniquely incorporated into a program of
self-development and community awareness.
