Today’s topics: Christian Appalachian Project for Boston-area Catholics

Summary of today’s show: The Christian Appalachian Project was founded by Fr. Ralph Beiting, a priest of the Diocese of Lexington, KY. It has worked for decades to serve people in need in Appalachia by providing physical, spiritual and emotional support through a wide variety of programs and services. Fr. Ed Riley, currently the Dean of Men at St. John’s Seminary, served as part of this ministry for 3 years full-time and he leads service week trips there each year, including this upcoming office. Christine Dufresne, from New Bedford and now St. Mary’s Parish in Waltham, originally joined the mission trip in August of 2009 and then moved there to serve for 14 months as the aide to Msgr. Beiting. Both Fr. Ed and Christine share moving stories of their experiences on today’s show.
