Your donations are the driving force behind our multifaceted mission. In our effort to meet urgent material needs and provide spiritual blessings to poor families around the world, we view these gifts as a precious resource from God that we must handle with care and accountability.
In developing countries around the globe, devoted Catholic priests, sisters and lay missionaries are eager to help the poor, but few have the financial resources they need to achieve their goals. Your gifts through Cross Catholic Outreach are sent directly to these devoted ministers of the Gospel.
