Last fall Good Samaritan Ministries received a visit from the Diocese of Helena's Bishop, George Leo Thomas. Good Samaritan's mission of social justice is one that is close to the Bishop's heart. After taking a tour, he was able to sit and visit with our staff members, the main priority of his visit. Catholic Extension Society, a national organization committed to Catholic missions like Good Samaritan Ministries, was able to be there to film the visit. Below is the video they compiled on the visit and the Bishop's mission to serve the poor.
Our favorite quote of Bishop Thomas’ from the video which was also a sentiment he echoed when he visited with us:
“I quoted St. Augustine and he says in just a very few words what I believe so strongly in; He says ‘If you look deeply enough in the eyes of any person there you will see something that is divine’… And I think that summarizes the heart of Catholic Social Teaching, Catholic Social Outreach and our Ministry to the poor. That every person is made in Gods image, every person has inherent value, and part of our mission is to help our brothers and sisters recognize Christ in every face that they see
