Catholic Charities

Posted on May 03, 2017 in: General News

Thank you for your Annual Appeal efforts!
Catholic Charities would like to thank the parishes for their efforts for our 2017 Annual Appeal. We know there are many, many second collections throughout the year and we love that you support Catholic Charities' mission to be Christ's merciful love to those who suffer in our diocese. If your parish has not sent in the donations that were made during your second collection, we ask that you do so as soon as possible so we can thank our donors in a timely fashion. Any questions should be directed to Jennifer Allen at jallen@cctulsa.org or 918.508.7115. We also ask that brochures be kept in the back of church all year, as they provide general information about Catholic Charities and how people can get involved in our mission.
