Children and Families in Ukraine

Unite as Catholics to share our love.


The war in Ukraine has forced families to flee their homes and communities in a desperate attempt to survive. Help us to continue to rush food, water, sanitary kits, ambulances and other relief where it is needed most. Your generosity will empower a network of Catholic partners, including Cardinal Konrad Krajewski of the Dicastery for the Service of Charity and those working at shelters in the Ukrainian communities of Lutsk, Struga and Nowa Uszyca.

Share the Christmas Catalog


The Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog makes it fun and easy to extend the joy of Christmas to the poor. Instead of being filled with retail items, the catalog contains meaningful gifts for some of the world’s most impoverished families. Some gifts are lifesaving items such as Basic Medicines or Hygiene Products, while others are large projects such as Safe Homes or Clean Water. All gifts are sent on your behalf to grateful families in developing countries.

It’s easy to shop through the Cross Catholic Outreach Christmas Catalog. Simply browse through the categories and choose an item within your budget and close to your heart, such as Emergency Aid Blankets or Powdered Milk for Children. Select and sponsor one or more of these gifts, and you’ll make a meaningful impact on the life of a needy child or family overseas. It’s that simple!

Blessing the poor happens year-round. Some gifts in our Christmas Catalog are sourced locally, so there is no need to worry about international shipping. For items that require shipping, Cross Catholic Outreach works with partners in every country we serve to ensure Christmas Catalog gifts are delivered in a timely fashion.

Yes! Making a gift in honor of a friend or family member(s) is a fun and easy way to share Christmas joy. Once you complete the checkout process, let them know by sending a print this certificate or e-Card.

Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the Christmas Catalog incurred through June 30, 2023, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
