PAL Campaign featured in Catholic Creatives
Last year, I had the incredible opportunity and fortune to connect with the good people from Catholic Creatives. This team of young people, dedicated to the promotion of truth through beauty has done incredible things for the church. Since then, the group has blossomed and grown into a massive community of believers, dedicated to this same cause. I am so proud and happy to be a part, and even more humbled, that PAL Campaign was featured as one of the "Creations of the Week."
