At World Youth Day, Pope Francis called young Catholics to bring the presence of Christ to those on the periphery and to do so boldly. Given Catholic Extension’s unique status as a papal society, they are inspired to respond to our Holy Father’s call.  Therefore they are launching Extension Day a campaign designed to encourage and celebrate young Catholics who are extending beyond themselves to bring Christ’s love to others. Parishes, youth groups and campus ministries will have an incredible opportunity to have their good works seen by Pope Francis, and are also eligible to receive one of multiple $500 and $1,000 grants! Visit or view this brief video below for more information.
