Flat Francis


Pope Francis is coming to America for the first time in September. Since Catholic Extension has been supporting the Catholic Church in America for 110 years, we want you to help us show him the face of American Catholicism.

Take a photo with this cutout of Pope Francis and submit it via Facebook or post it on Twitter/Instagram with the hashtag #FlatFrancis!
