“Small acts of kindness, not great speeches, show God’s love best.” – Pope Francis
If you are thinking about your final charitable gifts for the year, consider how a gift through The Catholic Foundation can help the people who need it most.
You can support the mission of the Church by helping parishes, schools and organizations build resources for their ministries, and fund the good works that bring life to the Gospel teachings.
