Seeking Support

We have received reports from several local parishioners stating that they received a telephone call soliciting for contributions to Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities does not solicit for individual contributions by telemarketing. Currently, Catholic Charities solicits support by mail, email, our website,, and our annual second collection in November.
If you receive a call seeking contributions for Catholic Charities, please feel free to contact our office at 944-9388.
