It’s easy to shop through the Cross Catholic Outreach Easter Catalog.

During Lent, Catholics around the world pray, fast and give alms for our brothers and sisters in need. Small sacrifices are just one of the ways that we can follow Jesus’ example of giving his life on the cross to accomplish God’s plan of redemption. When we give alms, we bless the poor, we obey God’s command to care for them, and express our gratitude for the gift of salvation!
Donations from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the Easter Catalog incurred through June 30, 2024, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than are needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
