A Memorial Gift honoring those who have died
During the period of mourning the death of a friend or family member our need to express feelings of loss and sorrow is enormous; sometimes overwhelming. Since we can no longer speak directly to those who have died, often an act of kindness to someone else helps to convey our feelings. It makes us feel better even if only for a moment. Sending cards and messages of sympathy as well as memorial contributions to charity have traditionally been ways of channeling our sorrow and providing healing. If it is in keeping with your personal feelings and customs, may we suggest a memorial gift in the name of someone you loved and admired to help continue the work of Catholic Charities? For more than 100 years Catholic Charities has offered a myriad of services to the poor, disadvantaged and disenfranchised. Your memorial gift honors those who have died and continues the works of mercy of Catholic Charities in their names.
