Do This In Memory of Me - Catholic Charitites

Do this in memory of me.

At the beginning of the Easter Triduum, in the middle of the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper, we find an invitation to have a collection of gifts for the poor, accompanied by singing
Ubi Caritas, "Where Charity and Love Prevail."

Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County invites parishes to work with us in serving those who live in poverty in our county.

Season of Service
February 21, 2007 to April 5, 2007

Individual Gift Collection Program Examples:
Toiletries for Today,
Slippers for Seniors,
Coats for Children
Target Gift Cards for Low Income Families
