Meet Sean L. Callahan, Catholic Relief Services' New President and CEO


Sean L. Callahan has served with Catholic Relief Services for 28 years, from Latin America to India with St. Teresa of Calcutta to everywhere where God’s people have been in danger. Now he takes over as CRS’s new president, succeeding Dr. Carolyn Woo. He now leads the US Catholic Church in reaching out to the poorest of the poor, the refugee, the victim of war and disaster, the sick and dying, and the exploited, all with the compassion the Gospel calls us to, reflecting God’s grace to all corners of the globe.

Meet Sean.

You may have seen Sean on NBC commenting on Pope Francis’ historic visit to the Holy Land, or on EWTN telling the stories of the refugees CRS serves. Here he is sharing his recollections of Saint Teresa upon the occasion of her canonization.

Please pray for Sean, and the work of CRS and the family of Caritas agencies all around the world.
