I am just returning from Kansas where I met with Catholics from Catholic Extension-supported parishes in the diocese of Dodge City. This is a rural diocese, where hard work is simply a way of life.
As we begin 2011, I look back at this past year with a sense of awe at what I’ve seen accomplished by the thousands of people to whom Catholic Extension donors entrusted $18 million dollars of support.
At Catholic Extension, we’ve seen so many inspiring Catholic communities doing so much with few resources. We’ve developed a saying to describe what we are witnessing: “Hope is happening in 3-D.”
