There’s no predicting where or when the next disaster might arise. Your generosity will help ensure that when a crisis comes to a ministry partner’s door, we can equip God’s people to rescue the vulnerable and display the Savior’s love.
When Hurricanes Laura and Sally slammed into the U.S. Gulf Coast in September 2020, Cross Catholic Outreach partnered with the Catholic Charities of New Orleans, the Archdiocese of Mobile, and the Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee to provide more than $800,000 in material aid to affected families and children.
Cross Catholic Outreach is working in the U.S. and overseas to serve those impacted by COVID-19. Our poorest brothers and sisters feel the effects of the pandemic, with food insecurity posing perhaps the greatest threat. Donations support our ministry partners that are addressing the current and ongoing urgent needs of the poor in 28 different countries.
When Hurricane Dorian made landfall in the Bahamas on September 1, 2019, Cross Catholic Outreach rallied to provide emergency relief, which included cash grants, the shipment of over 540,000 meals, and medical shipments and other important relief supplies.
Soon after Cyclone Idai tore through southeastern Africa in March 2019, Cross Catholic Outreach responded. Our relief aid empowered our in-country ministry partners in Malawi to repair houses, construct new concrete structures and develop sustainable solutions to housing dilemmas. In Mozambique, Cross helped the Archdiocese of Beirato purchase food for needy families.
Regular contributions from monthly donors empowered Cross Catholic Outreach to provide hope and healing following the deadliest volcano eruption in Guatemala since 1929. By working with our ministry partners in the area, our ministry helped fund permanent housing for displaced survivors.
Provide a rapid and effective response when unexpected emergencies occur. Through your generous support, we can set our global shipping network in motion to begin transporting urgently needed food, water, medicine and other supplies to survivors as soon as possible.

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 incurred through June 30, 2021, the close of our ministry’s new 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.
