Welcome to the Office of the
Social Apostolate!


As Catholics, we believe in caring for people at all stages of life from conception until natural death – this is our social apostolate. We do this through programs such as CRS Ricebowl during Lent, exercising our right and duty to be faithful citizens, caring for the poor and needy of our society, and so much more. Check out the links on the right to find out more about our programs.
