Catholic Charities Month 2022
Catholic Charities Month: August 2022
Catholic Charities organized to help families in crisis after World War 1 (1918) in Will, Grundy, Kankakee, and DuPage Counties. The Diocese of Joliet had not yet been established and, at that time, Catholic Charities operated from Chicago. Our first office opened in Joliet in 1944 with offices in Kankakee and Wheaton opening the following year. In 1962, Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet was officially
incorporated as the organization that we are today.
I am so proud to celebrate the 60-year anniversary of serving the poor and vulnerable in our community as Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet!
August is Catholic Charities Month. We pray that you will give a gift to help us continue our legacy of doing God’s work in the community.
Please send a gift today. We’ll remember your kindness each month with a prayer in honor of you and other donors who help us do God’s work in our community. On behalf of those we serve, thank you for supporting our mission for 60 years! May God bless you and your family always.
God Bless You,
