"It's best to not confuse optimism with hope. Optimism is a psychological attitude toward life. Hope goes further. It is an anchor that one hurls toward the future, it's what lets you pull on the line and reach what you're aiming for [and head in] the right direction." - Pope Francis

Since 1905, Catholic Extension has helped spread hope by contributing more than $500 million to strengthen and support under-resourced Catholic communities across the US.

Now it's your turn - simply share this post and help spread awareness of our mission to build faith, inspire hope and ignite change.

“A good shepherd should have the smell of his sheep.”

Bishop Tyson from the Diocese of Yakima, Washington, sends his seminarians to “work among the people” in the summer – picking apples, harvesting asparagus or working in packinghouses.

Check out this little historical artifact we came across today!

In a certificate dated July 31, 1911, the Bishop of Nashville confirmed that roofing and plastering had begun on St. Mary's Catholic School (Johnson City, TN) - and that funds from a Catholic Extension donor were being applied towards it's construction. A rough sketch of the project was included on the back of the certificate.

Today we continue our legacy of supporting and strengthening the Church's presence across the United States - though with a bit more technology! ;)
