"To love and serve our neighbors as ourselves."

“Amen I say to you whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”

Matthew 25:40

It’s a privilege for Catholic Charities to gather with loyal donors and friends every year to celebrate individuals in our Diocese who are living this Gospel teaching.

Mark your calendar for this year’s Annual Recognition Dinner and the presentation of the Msgr. William M. Griffin Humanitarian Award and the Matthew 25 Youth Humanitarian Award.

Tickets and sponsorships will be available soon. All proceeds from this wonderful event benefit the most vulnerable individuals and families in our eight-county area.
