Catholic Charities: Campaign for Charity and Justice
Thank you and your parish community for your generous donations totaling over $400,000 from last year’s Catholic Charities Campaign for Charity and Justice (formerly the Catholic Campaign for Human Development). Your support helped fund grants to 35 parishes and community-based works of charity across the Archdiocese.
Included here are details and materials for the promotion of the 2019 Catholic Charities Campaign for Charity and Justice second collection on November 23-24. The theme of this year’s collection is the “World Day of the Poor.”
Enclosed are suggested petitions, bulletin announcements and bulletin inserts. We’ve also included a timeline for guidance on when to promote the campaign, and a social media guide with suggested posts for your parish’s Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages.
