This year, Catholic Schools Week is celebrated January 28 through February 3, 2024. During this time, Catholic Charities expresses our appreciation for the acts of kindness shown by students throughout the year to our neighbors in need. We are grateful for the many students who turn to Catholic Charities as a place of service and an opportunity to develop their community involvement skills and learn through helping others.

We thank you students, families, and schools for your contributions of stacks of diapers raised through diaper drives, bags of food thoughtfully assembled in food drives, and the clothing collected to help keep children comfortably clothed for the season! And your gifts each year at Christmas put smiles on the faces of children who receive toys during the holidays!

Throughout the year, the generosity you show with your time when you volunteer aids our staff to provide help and create hope for individuals and families with dignity and respect. Your successful fundraisers make it possible for Catholic Charities to be there for our brothers and sisters in their time of critical and urgent needs!

As the next generation, and future of our diocese, through your work with Catholic Charities, you provide an example of what it means to live the faith and we celebrate you for that.
