"At Easter we are reminded of God's great love for all people. May this love fill our homes, renew our commitment to the Gospel, and bring hope to a world hungry for peace and justice," Fr. Snyder said. "As we rejoice and celebrate, let us also be ever-mindful of those who need our help."
Catholic Charities USA's members provide help and create hope for more than 9 million people a year regardless of religious, social, or economic backgrounds. For almost 300 years, Catholic Charities agencies have worked to reduce poverty by providing a myriad of vital services in their communities, ranging from health care and job training to food and housing. In 2010, Catholic Charities USA celebrated its centennial anniversary and introduced new federal legislation – the National Opportunity and Community Renewal Act (NOCRA) – to transform the nation's approach to poverty.
