"To love and serve our neighbors as ourselves."

Catholic Charities Annual Recognition Dinner was held Thursday, June 6, 2019 at The Casino at Lakemont. It was a wonderful affair where friends, family and members of the community came together to recognize this year's award winners.  

With summer finally here, some of us are getting ready for vacations, days at the pool, and barbecuing with friends. For struggling families, summer could mean deeper financial setbacks and a lot more stress. 

This year, Catholic Charities participated in Centre Gives for the first time. During the event, Catholic Charities received $2,214 from 19 donors. 

Imagine being just 18 and alone in a new city, without a home, a family or any kind of support system. This is where one teen found himself when he turned to the Martha and Mary House Emergency Homeless Shelter for help.  

There is still time to register for this year's Annual Recognition Dinner as we honor outstanding individuals with the 2019 Msgr. William M. Griffin Humanitarian Award and the 2019 Matthew 25 Youth Humanitarian Award. The dinner will be held on Thursday, June 6, 2019 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at The Casino at Lakemont.
