In Memory Of

Every year, Catholic Charities receives donations In Memory Of  loved ones who have died. These names used to be mentioned in our Annual Reports, but we felt this once-a-year publication was not enough to acknowledge the gift you have shared in memory of your loved one. We are grateful that you chose Catholic Charities and those in need that we serve with your memorial gift. Please review the memorial gifts listed below and join us in prayer for those who need the healing presence of our Lord.




Lord of Life and Love

Lord of life and love, as we give thanks for times past, grant us courage to embrace the present and grace to share the future.

In Memory of loved ones dear, kindle their flame to shine in the dark and light the path ahead.

Show the way that leads to life as we cherish days gone by and inspire us with the touch of love that faith and hope live on.

Please review our 2020 In Honor Of listing below and join with us in prayer of thanksgiving! Thanksgiving for what we may have and prayers for those in need.


O God, when I have food, help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work, help me to remember the jobless;
When I have a home, help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain, help me to remember those who suffer,
And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency; bestir my compassion; and be concerned enough to help;
By word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted.      - Author Unknown
