Our call to holiness and charity go hand in hand. Jesus teaches us, “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:37b-40). As His Body on earth, the Catholic Church cares for people in need, both spiritually and financially, advocates for social justice, and encourages the faithful to action. If you are in need of assistance, please contact us:
