About the organization
The mission of Catholic Charities is to provide service to people in need, to advocate for justice in social structures, and to call the entire church and other
people of good will to do the same.

to know and experience the tremendous and abundant love of God
through Jesus Christ.
We commit ourselves
to break down walls of division
that keep sisters and brothers separated from one another,

we resolve to build bridges of
hope, mercy and justice
toward the creation of a culture of communal care
responsive to the cries
of those who are poor.
