Prayer changes everything.

Join Us in Praying for Members of the Catholic Charities Family!

Our staff. Our clients. Our volunteers. They all need prayer, the support of others lifting them up to the Lord and keeping their safety, health, and success in the forefront of their thoughts. If you would like to sign-up to pray for one of our areas of service, we ask that you committ to keeping that group of people in your prayers for 30 days.

Signing up for this email list does not add you to any of our regular newsletter mailings or our monthly e-newsletter. You can sign up for those publications here.

May God bless you with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that you may live deep within your heart.

May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people, so that you may work for justice, freedom, and peace.

May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, starvation, and war, so that you may reach out your hand to comfort them and to turn their pain into joy.

And may God bless you with enough foolishness to believe that you can make a difference in this world, so that you can do what others claim cannot be done.

– Benediction of St. Francis
