NYPD Officer Rivera

As members of the greater New York family, we remember and mourn the life of Police Officer Jason Rivera - a shining star and hero. Catholic Charities was blessed to witness this first-hand, as he attended our Alianza youth programs in northern Manhattan during his formative years. His death touches us deeply. We also mourn the death of Officer Wilbert Mora, who passed away on 01/25/22.

In Another Pandemic Year, Rising to Meet Challenges

Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York, offered a pop-up vaccination event at the Betances Houses​​​ in partnership with the Bronx Rising Initiative and the Morris Heights Health Center. Catholic Charities pop-up vaccine sites operate throughout the city, mainly at affordable housing sites connected with Catholic Charities and local parishes.

Celebrations and Gifts That Embody the Holiday Spirit

Volunteers streamed into the expansive basement of the Church of Our Saviour on Park Avenue in Manhattan in December to help with the St. Nicholas Project, which is sponsored by the Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New York and provides winter essentials, such as hats, sweaters and gloves, to those who cannot afford them. About 1,400 families benefited this year from the project.

Support for 30 plus Bronx Fire families begun by POTS and Catholic Charities New York

Catholic Charities of New York delivered emergency cash cards to our local affiliated agency, Part of the Solution (POTS), and St. Simon Stock - St. Joseph Parish to distribute the families impacted by the fire for immediate emergency needs. Both POTS and the parish have identified and been in contact with over 30 families from the building.
