Catholic Charities USA Discusses Immigration Ministry

The immigration work of Catholic Charities has been the subject recently of much media scrutiny and public discussion. We’d like to take this opportunity to further educate people about our ministry on this important and ongoing issue.

Statement, February 10, 2022:

The Catholic Church has been ministering to the poor for 2,000 years and Catholic Charities, the U.S. humanitarian arm of the Church, has been caring for our vulnerable sisters and brothers since 1910. In collaboration with every administration since our founding a century ago, we are on the ground doing what they can’t — caring for those who are homeless, hungry, disaster-stricken, out-of-work and suffering. Our work is humanitarian, not political, and we proudly serve both citizens and migrants in our country.
