Catholic Charities makes it possible for the Church to exercise charity - to be a Church that reaches out and lives the mission of service to the poor and vulnerable
- providing help and creating hope

- Cardinal Joseph Tobin, Archbishop of Newark


"A basic moral test is how our most vulnerable members are faring. In a society marred by deepening divisions between rich and poor, our tradition instructs us to put the needs of the poor and the vulnerable first."
          U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops
