Catholic Education & Formation
Catholic Extension funds efforts to enhance Catholic family life by providing resources to ministries that support both marriage and family.
These include faith formation and religious education programs for all ages, such as Catholic Bible studies, religion and CCD classes for young students, and classes on sacramental preparation. Our Catholic school initiatives help schools recruit and serve new families in their communities.
Catholic Worship and Faith Resources
Our grants defray the cost of essential Catholic faith resources—items that are in short supply in many poor areas. These include Bibles for Bible study programs, other religious education resource materials, and funding for liturgical ministries. Support also extends to Catholic media, such as radio and television programs, that evangelize to a broader audience to the faith.
