I had the pleasure this past Sunday of speaking to the congregations of St. Joseph’s in Villisca and St. Clare’s in Clarinda. 


I am always amazed at how attentive and interested parishes are in the work that we do. That I do. 


It is obvious from watching their reactions as they listen that they see the value in our services and especially as I explain that the work we do, we are doing in their name.  When they contributed to Catholic Charities through service or collections of items or money,  they are providing us with the resources to provide essential services.


This experience has served as a good reminder to me that people in every part of our Diocese truly want to know about and to share in the work of Catholic Charities.
