This week, Changing Our World‘s, Jim Friend speaks with Brian Corbin, KHS, Executive Vice President for Member Services at Catholic Charities USA. For Brian, Catholic Charities is “a ministry of the Bishop that enables us to continue the work of the early Apostles in caring for the widows, orphans, and strangers among us.” Today, we see how Catholic Charities provides service to people in need, advocates for justice, and calls the entire church and other people of goodwill to do the same.
