Catholic Charities Christmas Collection

Each year our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day second collections benefit Catholic Charities Atlanta. Catholic Charities has a 67-year legacy in Georgia of providing help and hope for our brothers and sisters in need. Many of the clients are members of the working poor who work long hours at several jobs to support their families. Many of these individuals are also facing a life crisis, and are alone and frightened. Catholic Charities Atlanta helps to identify their problems and provides them with the resources to put them on the path to independence.

Catholic Charities services are aimed at empowering people to utilize their strengths and resources to meet their individual and family needs. Please give generously where it truly counts. Please support Catholic Charities to provide help and create hope for individuals and families facing challenges in our community, struggling on the margins of society, and living in poverty.

You can bring your parish envelope to Mass, or mail it to our office, or give online below.
