There are inspiring and powerful stories all around us. Priests, religious, and the lay faithful all have a story to tell. Each unique chapter bears witness to the love of Christ in their lives.
Following in the footsteps of Christ who shared his Gospel through stories, LACatholics is excited to bring you LACatholics Stories: a series that highlights the unique testimonies of #LACatholics around our Archdiocese.
Learn more about Joe Kim, founder of PAL Campaign, as he shares his witness of God’s beauty as a Teacher, Innovator, and LACatholic.
