Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Monterey offers a wide variety of programs and services that help families and individuals and change their lives for good. Our services give people the tools they need to overcome many of the barriers to fully participating in our community and living a good life.

Nearly one in four residents within our four county service area can’t make ends meet. We urgently need your financial support to help them rise up out of poverty. Our programs are designed to create wellness and self-sufficiency.

Your support makes our work at Catholic Charities possible.There are many ways you can take a stand against poverty and help poor families.

You can become a member of the Opus Christi Society

“Opus Christi,” in Latin, literally means “hands of Christ.” Members contribute $1,000 or more, annually, to strengthen the financial foundation of Catholic Charities in order to fund our programs. We invite individuals who can make a gift at this level to prayfully consider becoming a member. An appreciation Mass and dinner, hosted by Bishop Garcia, is held once a year to recognize and thank these major donors.
