Catholic Extension Coming to EWTN

Watch Trailer:

For the first time ever, the stories of hope and goodness witnessed by Catholic Extension are being broadcast to a large television audience, allowing millions to share in these accounts of faith. Two upcoming episodes will be part of EWTN’s new series, “The Church Universal,” with more to come next year.

The first episode, ‘The Church’s Heroic Presence Among the Poor,’ features Catholic Extension president Fr. Jack Wall sharing inspirational stories from areas where faith is thriving but resources are scarce. The episode airs on EWTN during the series premiere on Sunday, Aug. 31 at 5 p.m. ET. An encore airing follows on Friday, Sept. 5 at 10 p.m. ET.
