BALTIMORE — Catholic Relief Services convened more than 120 of its supporters, including Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano of San Diego, in Washington, D.C., for its first-ever National Gathering.

Held June 27 to 30 at the Catholic University of America, it included prayer, community building, and training, as well as a day on Capitol Hill. Supporters met with congressional offices to advocate for U.S. foreign aid.

Bishop Bejarano said, “It is a blessing to be here … It’s our job to help our representatives see that supporting foreign aid really makes a difference.”
