Join Us in Giving Back this Lent

Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Wednesday, February 17, marks the beginning of Lent. This Lenten season, we're asking you to join us in giving back instead of giving something up. Catholic Charities is honored to share messages from some of our community partners who find inspiration in the many ways our neighbors have given back to those most in need, particularly this past year.  

Today, we hear a message from Father John Currie, pastor of Dorchester Catholic.  Please watch Father Currie’s message below and consider joining us as we give back to those in need across our communities this Lent.

Celebrate Valentine's Day by Feeding a Family in Need

Friday, February 12, 2021


This Valentine’s Day weekend, we encourage you to forego a dinner out and, instead, feed a family in need in your local community.

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.
