CROSS CATHOLIC OUTREACH - 09/14/2019

Cross Catholic Outreach September 14/ 15 Next weekend, September 14/ 15, Reverend Monsignor Andrew Martin of Cross Catholic Outreach will be visiting our parish to speak on behalf of the poor in developing countries. Cross Catholic Outreach was founded to create a meaningful link between parishes in America and the priests and nuns working in the Church in the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Central and South America. Monsignor Martin was ordained in Saint Peter’s Basilica in1967 for the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey. He served primarily in the field of secondary education holding positions as teacher, department chair, vice principal, principal, and president in four of the high schools in his diocese. Upon his retirement in 2010, he was named President Emeritus of Camden Catholic High School, where he continues to work in the Development Office. His “retirement” work at the school is rewarding and keeps him in tune with today’s young people. He is grateful for the opportunity that Cross Catholic Outreach gives him to incorporate into his own priesthood this essential ministry to the poorest of the poor.
