Set the next generation free from poverty

Join our Global Mission

Securing a quality education is critical to families seeking a path out of poverty. In fact, their future success depends upon it.

At Cross Catholic Outreach, we believe in raising up and empowering the next generation of Catholic leaders in the developing world. Our ministry partners share this goal, and they are equally dedicated to helping the poor through both material and spiritual blessings. Many insist the only way youth education can be transformed is through this integral approach. By joining us in this mission, boys and girls will have the opportunity to attend school in order to learn and develop their God-given skills.

Home Incarnate Word


Children like Percy need your help

High in the Andes Mountains, children of poor Peruvian families – children like Percy Quispes who plans to be a doctor when he grows up – had little access to education because their remote villages were so far from any schools. To ensure that these children received a quality education, Cross Catholic Outreach partnered with Home Incarnate Word to build two new boarding homes — one for boys and one for girls.

Now, under the leadership of Father Adrian Codevilla, these students receive food, water, shelter, tutoring, Catholic spirituality, loving Christian fellowship and access to a quality education.

Kobonal Haiti Mission


Education is an Indispensable Tool in the Fight Against Poverty

Our on-the-ground ministry partners, like the Kobonal Haiti Mission, play an important role in the lives of the community’s children, strengthening their faith and providing them with an education they would never receive if it wasn’t for generous donors like you!

The Kobonal School provides instruction up to sixth grade, but it unlocks opportunities that go far beyond primary education. Incredibly, nearly 500 of Kobonal’s schoolchildren have also earned scholarships to secondary schools and universities.

Cross Catholic Outreach

Our mission is to mobilize the global Catholic Church to transform the poor and their communities materially and spiritually for the glory of Jesus Christ. Your gift empowers us to serve the poorest of the poor by channeling life-changing aid through an international network of dioceses, parishes and Catholic missionaries. This cost-effective approach helps break the cycle of poverty and advance Catholic evangelization.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for general education incurred through June 30, 2020, 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.
