Habemus Papam! We have a new Pope!

We have a new pope! As a Papal Society, we welcome the news of our new Holy Father, Pope Francis, and pledge our prayers for him and for our Church. In a special way, we renew our commitment as Catholic Extension to the challenge of Evangelization in our own land and among our own people of the United States.

I ask you as generous donors to Catholic Extension, and supporters of our mission to the poorest communities in America, to join us in prayer for Pope Francis and for our continuing commitment to build faith, inspire hope, and ignite a true and lasting change in the hearts and people that you so wonderfully serve.

- Father Jack Wall
President of Catholic Extension
