Archbishop Chaput will launch the 2017 Catholic Charities Appeal, the single largest fundraising initiative in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia at a news conference tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m.

The announcement will take place at Saint Katherine Day School in Wynnewood. As space at the venue is limited, you are invited to watch our live streaming broadcast on the Archdiocesan website, www.archphila.org.

Archbishop Chaput will announce this year’s fundraising goal and highlight the impact this initiative has on those served by the charitable and educational ministries of the Archdiocese.

Mr. David Ripsom, President of the Catholic Charities Appeal Board, Ms. Amy Stoner, Director of Community-based and Homeless Services for CSS, and Ms. Kathleen Gould, Principal of Saint Katherine Day School will be in attendance to offer additional remarks, along with representative beneficiaries.

The Catholic Charities Appeal will be a channel of hope for well over 100,000 people through countless organizations and ministries throughout the five-county metropolitan area comprising the Archdiocese. Programs include housing for the homeless, community food cupboards, afterschool academic enrichment and recreational opportunities for young youth, and family support services.
