Recently, the Holy Father and Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis, held a private meeting with our CEO, Paul Mulligan; Sr. Director of Community and Faith Engagement, Malissa Larson; and a small ecumenical group. This group of 40 people traveled to Rome from around the globe.
The desire is to grow Christian unity worldwide and pray the prayer of Jesus in John 17: “Father, may they be one.” Meaningful conversations and connections came from spending time together around tables and across lines of difference. This meeting will continue to enrich Catholic Charities’ mission of walking alongside the most vulnerable.
“Time belongs to the Lord. Trusting in Him, we move forward with courage, building unity through discernment, to discover and implement God’s dream for us, and the paths of action ahead.” – Pope Francis
