The Grants Committee provides financial and material support to health clinics, soup kitchens and food distribution centers, home repair, and other relief programs in the United States and overseas. Special care is taken to ensure that no grant funds are used to help with overhead or administrative expenses.
The Defense of the Faith Committee supports educational initiatives that aim to strengthen the Catholic faith – in individuals and in the communities we serve.
In addition, since 2014, a portion of the Annual Stewardship Appeal has been used each year to underwrite the costs associated with bringing Malades and their companions (at no cost) on the annual pilgrimage to Lourdes.
Annual Stewardship Appeal: Fulfilling our promise to serve the sick and the needy
All contributions to the Appeal are used to support programs that provide a direct and meaningful service to the poor and sick, or to support programs that aim to educate our members and others in their Catholic faith so they can better know, live, and defend the faith.
