Dear Friends of Catholic Charities:
It is my honor to serve as Executive Director of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet. I have been the Agency’s Director of Development and Communications for the past eight years and look forward to continuing to help the poor and vulnerable in this new capacity. With each day that passes my commitment to the mission of Catholic Charities grows stronger. This is now and forever my life’s commitment.
Catholic Charities is doing God’s work within our community. We feed the hungry, house the homeless, care for children, protect seniors, and counsel those who seek help. I see the face of God in all those we are privileged to serve.
During the pandemic, the Agency has not skipped a beat. Our programs and services quickly changed to provide the same assistance while keeping everyone as safe and healthy as possible. I stand in awe of the impact Catholic Charities has on the community, particularly during these challenging times, and our staff who have faced this battle with determination, vigor and compassion.
Not only does Catholic Charities provide basic needs to our clients, but we plan for the future. The Agency works with each individual and family to help break the cycle of poverty. I have witnessed the success of these efforts countless times over the years.
It is through God that everything is possible, and through your support of Catholic Charities’ ministry that we are able to do God’s work on earth. On behalf of those we serve, I thank you.
For those of you I do not yet know, I look forward to meeting you. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns during this interim period. I look forward to hearing from you! I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and 815-723-3405.
