Catholic Charities Annual Appeal

The 2019 Catholic Charities Annual Appeal is underway. This is not a special collection; rather, the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal represents the chance for all Catholics to make a significant pledge, payable in installments, to Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland in order to support its mission of a society that stands united in its support of the “least among us.”

Walk in Faith. Give in Joy.  Your support of the 2019 Catholic Charities Annual Appeal helps us to all become missionary disciples. Please consider a generous gift that will change the lives of people like David, Marian, Shaye and Sharita. Hear their stories of transformation at www.catholiccommunity.org/videos. On behalf of the poor and needy of Northeast Ohio, thank you for your commitment to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
