Thank You for Telling Us What “Hope” Means!

Thank You for Providing Hope
This Lenten season, we decided rather than tell all of you what hope means to us, we wanted to know what hope means to you. People from all over sent in photos, videos and thoughts on the definition of hope — which helped us connect with over 40,000 people.

From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank all of you who shared, liked, commented and donated. Your support is what helps us provide hope for New Yorkers everyday.

We’re here to bring new life to New Yorkers in need that conquers pain, sadness and suffering.

Provide help. Create hope.

Transforming Lives with Hope: An Easter Video from Catholic Charities

Monday, April 9th, 2012

Easter is a sign of hope, and a sign of life. It is a reminder of the work we do at Catholic Charities for those who are suffering in our community.

The time of Easter reminds us that the help we give is a creative help – one that renews, one that transforms.

With your help, Catholic Charities enables people to transform their lives, so that they can live a new life, in a new way, based upon the goodness, the love and the caring that you bring to them.

So to all the friends and supporters in the Catholic Charities family, thank you for all that you do. We wish you a most blessed Easter season.

Transform a life this Easter.

Easter: A Celebration of New Life

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011
In a special video message, Monsignor Kevin Sullivan, executive director of Catholic Charities New York, reflects on the significance of Easter as the central celebration of the Christian faith. It is this celebration of new life, he says, that is at the heart of the work of Catholic Charities, which brings the hope of new beginnings to those in our community who are suffering and in need of help.

“Easter is the central feast of our Christian faith, and in a certain sense it really is what is at the essence of Catholic Charities, because it is about new life.

We work with people who tragically have experienced much suffering in their lives. But what we do at Catholic Charities is to say that there is hope, there is possibility of transformation, and as we celebrate Easter we have an incredible confirmation that even the most tragic suffering can be transformed in to new life – whether it be a family that is homeless, a family who is struggling from breakup, whether it is a child who tragically has been neglected or even abused.

Easter gives us great hope, and enables us to recommit ourselves to rebuilding the lives of those who come to Catholic Charities seeking help.”
