All month long, colleagues from around Catholic Charities of Boston shared their reflections on iconic Black heroes from throughout history who inspire them. We draw encouragement and motivation from their words and actions and are humbled to share our thoughts as we celebrate their achievements.
We're pleased to share a recent Denver Channel news piece featuring our VP of Programs, Larry Mayes, about the importance of vaccinating our homeless and vulnerable communities.
"The more people who get vaccinated from all walks of life, whether they're homeless or not… it helps all of us as a whole," Mayes said.
We are thrilled to announce that Catholic Charities of Boston (CCAB) received a $62,500 grant from the Boston Resiliency Fund as part of their final round of awards. Since the onset of the pandemic, the Boston Resiliency Fund has awarded CCAB $256,340 in aid to support our community members in need through this trying time.
One year ago, we welcomed Sister Norma Pimentel and Mohamad Ali, two of the nation's strongest champions for immigrants, for our "This is My Community" speaker series event. In an enlightening panel discussion moderated by WBUR's Tiziana Dearing, Sister Norma and Mr. Ali addressed the faith, economic and humanitarian dimensions of the immigration issue.

We've all given up so much. For Lent, let's all give something back.
As we embark on this Lenten season, we at Catholic Charities of Boston (CCAB) encourage others to give back instead of giving something up. The health and economic impacts of COVID-19 have been especially challenging for our most vulnerable community members, and now, more than ever, we need donor support to help us help our neighbors in need gain access to life's basic necessities. One unique way people can donate to CCAB is through our vehicle donation program in partnership with Charitable Adult Rides and Services (CARS).
Calling all local Boston volunteers!

This year has been challenging for us all, but has been especially difficult for those most vulnerable. As the financial pressures sparked by the coronavirus continue, more people than ever before are turning to our food pantries to put nutritious meals on the table to feed their families.
Catholic Charities is pleased to announce that we have begun distributing COVID-19 vaccinations to our shelter and food pantry staff members, volunteers, and guests. It is a relief to know this rollout is underway, and we look forward to the day when we all have an opportunity to protect ourselves against this deadly virus.
