On Monday, February 6 at 9pm ET, CatholicTV will broadcast a special episode of The Lens focused on refugees.
As we prepare for the Lenten season, Catholic Relief Services reminds us that we are called to encounter one another—to look for Christ in our neighbors all around us, and to go with peace into the world each day.
Meet Sean Callahan, new president and CEO of Catholic Relief Services.
We at Catholic Relief Services wish you great joy in this season, and invite you, your ministries, and all Christians gathering to join us in prayer—at your Christmas tables, at your Christmas liturgies, as you exchange gifts, and throughout the season—that this season may bring us peace, that this season may make us peacemakers.
