Congratulations 2022 Award Winners

The Mission of Catholic Charities is to provide service to those in need, to advocate for justice, to encourage all Catholics and all people to live justly and care for the poor in our local communities. Annually, Catholic Charities encourage parishes and schools to nominate worthy candidates who embody the mission of Catholic Charities for recognition.
