I spent Good Friday in Lenoir, NC, located near the eastern edge the Appalachian Mountain range. Catholic Extension supports a parish there called St.
“The Lord hears the cry of the poor… blessed be the Lord...” Many of us know the words to that song we sing at Mass. They come from Psalm 34.
Each year, nearly 100 parishes in the United States receive Catholic Extension funding to make critical facility improvements.
St. Gianna’s Maternity Home, in North Dakota, seems to bring to life these words, attributed to St. Francis. There are only 60 people in the tiny village of Warsaw. Many would say that it’s in the middle of nowhere.
Merry Christmas from Catholic Extension!
