Forty-seven ministries in Southern California will host California State University (CSU) leaders on February 12 and February 26 as part of the 12th Annual CSU Super Sunday, a campaign designed to encourage African American students to pursue higher education.

More than 100,000 congregants receive this important message each year. They also receive important resources from the CSU to help them foster a college-going culture at home, including information about preparing for college, applying to a CSU campus and applying for financial aid.

CSU Super Sunday is one of many events coordinated by CSU’s African American Initiative to increase the preparation and retention of African American students. The year-round partnership between the CSU and leaders in African American communities throughout the state provides support through additional outreach and preparation events such as the Super Saturday College Fair and the Summer Algebra Institute.

Churches holding Super Sunday services on Feb. 12 are Holy Trinity AME Church, 200 E. 68th St., Long Beach, at 10:15 a.m.; Family Center of Love, 8959 S. Western Ave., Los Angeles, at 1:30 p.m.; Glory Christian Fellowship International, 225 W. Torrance Blvd., Suite D, Carson, at 10:30 a.m.; and Price Chapel AME Church, 4000 W. Slauson Ave., Los Angeles, at 10 a.m.
