We Need Your Help

The Catholic Charities Appeal gives hope to thousands across the Philadelphia region. But without your support, this isn’t possible. We still have a long way to go to reach our $12.5 million goal before the end of the year. Now, we must remember that reaching our goal is much more than just a number – reaching our goal impacts the lives of our brothers and sisters in need.

Local Mission Activities

 

There are 16 mission parishes within the archdiocese of Philadelphia. Without CCA donations, these parishes would not survive. These parishes are anchors in their communities.

St. Thomas Aquinas Parish

My family came to this country in 2006. We heard from friends that St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Philadelphia had a large Indonesian community. We have lived here ever since and just love this parish. Our community is very close – we pray together, share meals with one another, help each other in sickness, and have activities for our children and host different events. The Church is definitely the center of our community. The parish helps immigrants and provides much needed services to Indonesian Catholics.

Thank you to the Catholic Charities Appeal and to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for giving us an Indonesian priest, Father Kurniawan. We are able to have Mass in our native language and celebrate as a community, Father makes all of that possible for us.
