Catholics mark World AIDS Day

This Saturday is World AIDS Day, and in Portland, Ore., the Catholic Sentinel has a story about two University of Portland nursing students who are on a mission is to raise awareness of the disease. The story notes that the students, Kelli Newcom and Mikayla Farnum, attended a national Catholic conference on AIDS last summer with a scholarship from Catholic Relief Services.

Speaking of CRS, the agency also is marking World AIDS Day with a special Web site. It also produced this video highlighting community-based HIV projects in Zambia.
