Christmas Day Collection for Catholic Charities

Bishop Brennan invites all to join him in sharing God’s love with families and children in need by giving generously to this year’s Catholic Charities Christmas collection. Revenue from this collection supports Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens (CCBQ) emergency food distributions and parish food pantries; Catholic Charities Emergency Call in Center and Emergency Walk in Centers; and multiple programs and services for children and youth, adults and seniors, the mentally ill, the hungry, and the homeless. Catholic Charities is one of the largest faith-based providers of affordable housing units for seniors, families, formerly homeless, and veterans.

The collection takes place at all Christmas Masses. Please return the special Catholic Charities envelope from your envelope packet with your gift. If you did not receive a printed envelope, we ask you to use a Catholic Charities envelope available in the Church or your own blank envelope marked for “Catholic Charities.” You may also give online at
