Catholic Charities Appeal

The distinctive mark of the Christian today, more than ever, must be love for the poor, the weak, the suffering  - JP II

Each January the Archdiocese of Mobile begins it's Catholic Charities Appeal, raising money to support the poor, the needy, schools, and families throughout the southern half of Alabama.  We rely on the generosity of so many people in order to provide for the needs of those we serve.  As this New Year comes around, make a resolution to support the good works of Catholic Charities this year.

You can give online here, or fill out the giving form during Catholic Charities Appeal Sunday on January 31st.
