On 9/11 and Every Day

Catholic Charities headed up and coordinated assistance between New York charities and victims of 9/11.

We were there for those suffering the horrendous fallout 15 years ago.  And we are still there now.

Join us as we honor and pray for victims of the 9/11 World Trade Center tragedy and for all who suffer from terrorism and struggle for peace.

At Catholic Charities, we will never forget.
