Catholic Charities of Fairfield County

 

Over the last 95 years, Catholic Charities has grown to be one of the largest private family service agencies in Fairfield County.

 

It has been our privilege and mission to serve the most vulnerable in our communities through programs which alleviate hunger, support the elderly and those with physical and mental health challenges, provide safe care for children and safe haven for the homeless, and deliver fair and just services to immigrants, all without regard to age, race, religion, or ability to pay.

 

We don’t do what we do for Catholics; we do what we do because we are Catholic.

 

 


 

POPE FRANCIS OFFERS WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO CATHOLIC CHARITIES

 

 
In an October 5th video message to the attendees of Catholic Charities
USA’s 2014 Annual Gathering in Charlotte, North Carolina,
Pope Francis encouraged members of the Catholic Charities network to
continue to be the hands of Christ at work serving those most in need, 
and to work towards social systems that provide everyone with
“the dignity of self-reliance.”
