Dear Friends in Christ... For the past 50 years Catholic Charities has been entrusted to serve the people of God while serving the Diocese of Corpus Christi. We pause as we reflect on our many blessings, and on the people that inspire us in a special and spiritual way. We are guided by the principles of our Catholic Social Teachings, and we adhere to the teachings of the Catholic Church. We rely on the principles founded in our Father's rich tradition of working for Charity and Justice. We advocate for the inherent dignity of every human person and we are called to serve according to the "preferential option for the poor." Despite the incredible variety of people of many faiths and beliefs who visit our humble organization, the reality is that our Faith makes us Catholic Charities.
Believing in the presence of God in our midst, we proclaim the sanctity of human life and the dignity of the person by sharing in the Mission of Jesus given to all. To this end, Catholic Charities of Corpus Christi works with individuals, families, and communities to help them meet their needs, address challenges, eliminate oppression, and build a just and compassionate society.
