Catholic Charities Offers Many Services to Families

Did you know that Catholic Charities offers a diverse array of programs and services throughout the Archdiocese of Dubuque, including Mental Health Counseling, Crisis Pregnancy and Post Abortion Counseling, Affordable Housing, Immigration Legal Services, Jail & Prison Ministry, mentoring and support for single parents and Disaster Services?  We ask you to consider supporting these services with your gift to the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal. Learn more atwww.CatholicCharitiesDubuque.org.

It is very important that parishioners return their contributions directly to Catholic Charities by mail in the envelope provided with their appeal letter, or with the form provided in the bulletin last week (extras one can be found on the table in the gathering area). Please make your check out to Catholic Charities, NOT St. John’s. Thank you!
