How to connect to Catholic Charities

New initiatives from Catholic Charities provide opportunities for families to get involved with the agency.

In celebration of the Year of the Family leading up to the Philadelphia visit of Pope Francis in September 2015, the agency is publishing monthly newsletters based on themes that follow the human lifecycle, from infancy through old age.

The newsletters provide families with tips from the Catholic Charities staff, keep families informed of the services the agency provides and showcase opportunities to get involved. Those interested can find all of the newsletters online and subscribe via e-mail at

To help focus the generosity of the holidays on the urgent needs of the people Catholic Charities serves, the agency started Project Wish List this Thanksgiving. This new holiday donations campaign helps connect families to the ongoing needs of those nearest them who struggle with poverty.

Catholic Charities centers in the six southern New Jersey counties (Atlantic, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem) have each posted a wish list of the items they most need. For some it’s food, for others it’s particular clothing items, for others it’s household items and diapers.

More information and all of the wish lists can be found on The initiative was born during the holidays, but will continue all year long with updated lists.
