Catholic Charities News
At this time of year, as we reflect upon our many blessings, I know that I count among my own blessings the many people that are Catholic Charities -- those we serve and those who serve. Our staff of 600 full and part-time professionals is ably supported in their work by nearly 3,000 volunteers, donating well over 200,000 hours of service over the past year.
This fall, we honored seven "Exceptional Volunteers" at our annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. The depth and breadth of their commitment is impressive.
The Boston Globe -- Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley said American bishops should do more to highlight the church’s work on poverty in response to Pope Francis’s call to Catholics to be “a church for the poor.”
