Catholic Charities brings comfort and compassion to those in spiritual and physical need. Recently, it has made a concerted effort to help those who are suffering due to the opioid crisis.
“Having lost my sister to the opioid crisis, it means a lot to me personally to feel supported by the Diocese. Every gift to the Diocese goes toward a mission of loving other people, of doing things for other people.”
- Mary Sampey, Director of Evangelization, Catholic Community of Connellsville
“Simply accepting people for who they are, even in the midst of their addiction, even in the midst of their struggles, that’s an act of love. From our perspective, that’s how God accepts all of us.”
- Dr. Paul Niemiec, Director of Counseling, Catholic Charities
