Bishop on Board

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Mar 21, 2012

A few days ago, we received an encouraging email from Bishop Hugh Slattery, MSC, in South Africa. I think it says something wonderful about the scope and impact of what we do here at CatholicCulture.org. It may even provide incentive for a a special Lenten donation to our work:

Greetings from South Africa. I’m very happy to keep on praying for your wonderful work and telling people about it. I retired a couple of years ago as Bishop of Tzaneen and am at present running a parish near the border with Zimbabwe. I try to help the people in the area of abortion, contraception and other life issues and of course in the whole area of HIV&AIDS. We are also involved in refugee work. You are doing a great service to the Church and to humanity—we all benefit from it.

That is very special, indeed.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

Dear reader: If you found the information on this page helpful in your pursuit of a better Catholic life, please support our work with a donation. Your donation will help us reach seven million Truth-seeking readers worldwide this year. Thank you!
