Last year, Catholic Charities served over 254,000 people in need.
Catholic Charities’ Guadalupe Home hosted another successful Fandango Under the Stars on Saturday, February 23rd at Pedrotti’s North Wind Ranch in Helotes. Guadalupe Home is a transitional shelter for mothers and their babies under the age of three who find themselves homeless. More than just a temporary shelter, Guadalupe Home provides a safe, no-cost home while mothers work toward self-sufficiency.
The golden rule is a simple one. In Matthew 7:12, Jesus told his disciples to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This principle is at the core of our Catholic identity. It is certainly at the core of the Catholic Charities mission to serve our community selflessly under the sign of love, from conception until natural death, regardless of race, religion, or national origin. It should be our calling, all of us, to work together to serve all people with love, respect, and dignity. Because of the Golden Rule, we choose to serve all people, not just Catholics, but because of our Catholic identity.
Seniors Deserve It
Our seniors are such an important asset to our community. Many have worked with dedication to career or raising a family which equals a lifetime of skills, experiences, and wisdom. It simply does not seem just or even humane to let them fall into isolation when they are so incredibly valuable to our families and our community.
