With COVID-19 moving through the country at a rapid rate, it’s easy to fall prey to a negative mindset. We’re often told to worry about only that which we can control, and in a situation that’s as fluid as this pandemic, it may seem that everything is out of our control. In these times, it’s helpful to remind ourselves that our attitudes can make all the difference.
The COVID-10 pandemic is affecting people across the globe. Many individuals and families in our communities are finding themselves in a pinch, lacking the basic necessities to support their families during this time of uncertainty. At Catholic Charities of Boston, our focus remains on supporting and providing for our neighbors in need.

When Representative Nick Collins ran for, and won a vacant seat in the Massachusetts State Senate, he left his spot as the State Rep in the 4th Suffolk District behind. One of his former aides, a longtime volunteer with Catholic Charities, David Biele, then vied for and won the Democratic primary for Collins’ old post.
Now running unopposed in the upcoming general election, Biele—a lifelong South Boston resident and community contributor—is now slated to represent his neighborhood in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

Interested in assisting elders in South Boston?
Join us for an information session about Catholic Charities’ pilot program to help elders facing food insecurity receive a monthly delivery of groceries. We’re looking for input from potential volunteers in the design of the program. Volunteers would be matched with a senior citizen and would “shop” at the St. Monica Parish food pantry once per month then deliver the groceries to a homebound elder living in a senior housing.
