 About Us

Providing Hope since 1936Andy with Sonia

From our humble roots when we started as the Catholic Aid Society through to today, our mission has not changed; to serve the poor and vulnerable and to do it with dignity and respect.  Each year, we serve more than 30,000 people in the six counties of the diocese.

Our Guiding Principles

We recognize that the interactions we have with people are as important as the outcomes of those interactions.

We remind ourselves that all people have the right and a duty to participate in seeking together the common good, and the well-being of families and communities.

We make the physically, emotionally, and economically marginalized central to our work, and we recognize that each encounter we have with the poor and vulnerable is an opportunity to receive the gifts of humanness, holiness, and faith, which they bring with them.

 

We are privileged to talk to all whom we encounter about their experiences. We not only give, but receive from this encounter, and are reminded of our vulnerability, poverty, and dignity. Then, we are given the responsibility to share these encounters and lived experiences with more people who, in turn, are given the same responsibility.

We endeavor to listen to people describe their needs and strive for ways to meet their needs and help to direct them develop and apply their skills to meet their own needs.
