Over the summer, a local 11-year-old named Eddie organized his own canned food drive to benefit Catholic Charities of Boston. He is involved in a local after-school and summer program, and this summer his teachers assigned a project—a community investment program—to give students the opportunity to develop and execute a community service project of their choosing. Eddie was encouraged to look into the community, identify a problem and create a plan to do his part in making a positive change.
Today (September 30) marks Father Phil Earley’s last day serving as General Counsel for Catholic Charities of Boston.
We are pleased to share that Marjean Perhot, director of Catholic Charities of Boston’s Refugee and Immigrant Services division, is a speaker at this year’s Catholic Immigrant Integration Initiative Virtual Conference, taking place later this week- October 1-2.
Marjean will participate in a panel discussion on ways that Catholic parishes, hospitals, refugee and legal service programs, charities and other institutions can rise to the immense challenges currently facing immigrants, refugees, their families and communities.
At Catholic Charities of Boston (CCAB), volunteers are essential to our work. From those who volunteer their time at one of our pantries or shelters, to those who deliver supplies and even those who help us spread information on social media, we are enormously grateful to each and every community member who helps us help others.
Members of St. Cecilia's Parish in the Back Bay of Boston have been volunteering with CCAB for over a decade, dedicating time each weekend to deliver food to our Yawkey Center food pantry and supporting us whenever and however they can.
