As much as we are a spiritual organization, we are a charitable one as well. Giving generously of ourselves is part of our Catholic mission of service. The way we give of our finances and our personal offerings makes us examples of Catholic women who live the life that Jesus Christ calls us to live.
The wide variety of charitable projects for courts to choose from shows how much service is needed in our towns. Choose some to donate money to as well as ones to donate your time and energy to.
Following are some charitable projects that you might begin in your own court. If you also participate in a charitable project that you would like to share, please contact the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org so we may post your idea.
