Mission

Inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Church and the pastoral leadership of the Bishop of Worcester, Catholic Charities is committed to meeting the needs of the poor, the homeless and the infirm and to enhancing the quality of life for all.

Catholic Charities will promote the gift and sacredness of life from the first moment of conception through all stages of human growth and development.  It is committed to strengthening families and to serving individuals in need, regardless of racial, ethnic, cultural or religious origins, ability to pay, or mental, physical or developmental challenges.

Catholic Charities believes that every person has the right to life, housing, food, shelter, clothing, and health care, and that all should be enabled to participate in the decisions that vitally affect them.

While our resources are not unlimited, Catholic Charities will strive to advocate cooperatively with parishes and civic organizations, seeking support from private and public agencies, and encouraging and availing itself of the rich human resource which its volunteers and staff provide – to create a network of care throughout Worcester County in the “…promotion of justice for the poor and of Christ’s kind of love for them.”
