Catholic Church to step up efforts to minister to the poor in Flint
Lansing Bishop Earl Boyea will be in Flint tomorrow to announce a major outreach by the Catholic Church to poor people in the city.
Faith in Flint is being touted as a “major initiative” to support Catholic Church efforts to help the poor in Flint.
The church’s new effort is part of Pope Francis’s call to focus more attention on the needs of the poor.
Flint has a higher percentage of its population living below the poverty line than the rest of Michigan.
