Night Walks in Salinas California
‪#‎FlatFrancis‬ recently joined a group of Catholics from the Diocese of Monterey who participate in Salinas Night Walks. In collaboration with the City of Salinas, California and the local police department, this group goes to identified areas of high violent, drug and gang activity at peak times to promote peace and safety.

Saul Hernandez, the new director of youth and young adult ministry for the diocese, is a homegrown leader from this community and has chosen to give back by focusing on outreach and ministry.

Today we remember Cardinal Francis George, our chancellor from 1997 to 2014. Watch this video to hear him discuss the gift of faith and Catholic Extension's vital role in spreading the faith across the country. Rest in peace, Cardinal George.

A new Pew Research Center report says Christianity is declining in America. But where the missionary spirit is alive, the Catholic Church is actually growing in the U.S.! Read our response to the report: http://cathext.in/1Fl8d9A
