Catholic Charities of Boston's Mission

Tuesday, October 27, 2020



For more than 100 years, Catholic Charities has continued its mission of building a just and compassionate society rooted in the dignity of all people. 

The story of Catholic Charities began in 1903 with John J. Williams, Archbishop of Boston. After witnessing the appalling social conditions of Boston’s immigrant and predominantly Catholic population, the Archbishop envisioned an agency that would provide assistance and hope to families in need across society.

Today, guided by the moral and social teachings of the Catholic Church, Catholic Charities supports the greater community by sharing its values and providing services with compassion and care to all, regardless of religion, race, gender, age, disability or ethnicity. Catholic Charities exists to help ensure that the Good Samaritan remains alive in our society.

A mission of HOPE for all.
