Cross International: Under the direction of its chairman, Bishop Sam Jacobs. Coss International Catholic Outreach is working to establish a stronger spiritual relationship between America’s Catholic parishes and their counterparts overseas – with the ultimate goal of helping the poorest of the poor. This weekend we welcome Rev. Jim Musumeci who comes to us on behalf of Cross International Catholic Outreach. Parishes in Haiti and other underdeveloped countries represent more than an important source of spiritual truth for their community. They also stand as a beacon of hope for impoverished families who have nowhere else to turn for help. Come and hear how we can make a difference in the lives of our least brothers and sisters in the Third World. You can also visit their website: www.crosscatholic,org.
