Pope Francis and Catholic organizations around the world, including Catholic Relief Services and Catholic Charities USA, call on you to join a global Catholic campaign to combat hunger as “One Human Family, Food for All”. On December 10, Pope Francis will launch the campaign and Catholics can respond by participating in a global "wave of prayer," joining our brothers and sisters in faith to pray at noon in each time zone around the world. Parishes, schools, agencies, institutions, and individuals are all invited to participate in the wave. Click here for the announcement and here for the prayer “One Human Family Food for All” . Ask your parish to get involved and spread the word. Please mark your calendars for December 10 as together we join Pope Francis and our global Church to fight hunger.
