  • Sunday Gospel reflection with Fr. Bill Grimm

    June 24, 2016

    When the Lord calls us, it is because he wants a response in action from us now, not a minute from now, not an hour from now, not next week or next year. He does not call upon us by appointment. He will not be pencilled into our over-full schedules.

  • Bangladesh's water crisis

    May 09, 2016

    During summer months, villages across northern Bangladesh lack water for drinking, domestic use and agricultural purposes. Experts say the problem is due to a combination of climate change and groundwater depletion. The crisis mostly affects poor farming communities, many of whom say the government's effort to tackle the problem has been inadequate. In response, aid agencies — including Catholic charity Caritas — are providing villagers with support so they can best manage the affects of the crisis. Photographer Stephan Uttom took these images in various villages in Chapai Nawabganj district, northern Bangladesh.
