Be an Instrument of Mercy

Support of the annual Charity and Development Appeal changes lives — forever.  Donations metaphorically grow hands and feet to serve those in need or crisis, like residents of the CDA-funded, My Sister’s Place, a Catholic Charities domestic violence shelter.  One mother, “Suzie,” and her two children arrived at the shelter to escape drugs, alcohol and abuse.  Read more from the Catholic Sun about Suzie and My Sister’s Place

The CDA supports community and charitable organizations like Catholic Charities and My Sister’s Place that assist individuals and families in crisis.  Organizations that serve the needs of local communities beyond the boundaries of any one parish.  Through your gift to the CDA, you become the hands and feet to:

  • Feed the hungry and give drink to the thirsty
  • Welcome the stranger and clothe the naked
  • Comfort the sick and visit those in prison
