Dear Pastors, Youth Ministers, and Youth Leaders:

Imagine the good works of your youth seen by Pope Francis!

Organize an “Extension Day” – a day dedicated to extending Christ’s presence to others through acts of prayer, service or philanthropy. In doing so you'll be responding to Pope Francis' World Youth Day invitation to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the world,and especially with those most in need.

Share your good works and then send in a video to the Catholic Extension Society.

Select video submissions have an incredible opportunity to have their good works seen by Pope Francis, and are also eligible to be awarded a grant between $500 and $1,000 to dedicate to their chosen ministry! 

Entries can be made in any language, and can document either new activities or ones you already have planned.

For more information about Extension Day and information about how to share your video for consideration, visit  Entries will be accepted through February 3, 2014, but groups planning to participate should RSVP by November 26.  If you are interested please contact Alma Benitez, Director of Stewardship and Development, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
