Agency Retreat Prepares for Catholic Charities Centennial

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

DSC_1704As an early step in preparation for the upcoming centennial celebration of The Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York – just three years from now in 2017 — executive directors from our 90 affiliated agencies convened last week at the Met Life building.  They participated in breakout sessions that focused on and collaborating and networking with fellow affiliated agencies.

“As we approach the Centennial of The Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, we reinforce and make clear our fundamental understanding of this federation of agencies,” Msgr. Sullivan said, “independent in governance and management, yet united by a common Catholic vision.  A vision which affirms the dignity of each person, of every religion or no religion, made in the image and likeness of God and the priority of our services and resources toward the poor and vulnerable.”

His Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, rang the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) on Monday, November 26, 2012 following the Cardinal’s Committee for Charity (CCC) 2012 Wall Street Breakfast.  The NYSE hosted the breakfast for the Wall Street division of the Cardinal’s Committee for Charity, which provides financial resources and counsel to help solve the problems of New Yorkers in need, non-Catholics and Catholics alike.

The event included a conversation between Larry A. Silverstein, President and CEO of Silverstein Properties, Inc., and Daniel Henninger, Deputy Editor of The Wall Street Journal Editorial Page on the future development of the financial district.

The annual breakfast, which took place in the historic Board Room of the New York Stock Exchange, has raised during its eight-year history nearly $4 million of much-needed funds to support families and individuals in greatest need who are served by The Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York.
