On this date in 1905, Father Francis Kelley first envisioned Catholic Extension when he discovered places and communities in the United States that were struggling to keep the Catholic faith alive and growing. 

Over the next 111 years, Catholic Extension has continued Father Kelley's vision of building faith, inspiring hope and igniting change through the Catholic Church in the United States.
