Catholic Lay Apostolate
We primarily create opportunities to encounter the tender heart of a needy brother or sister who may be half a world away. Globally, we promote and foster these loving relationships, not simply an exchange of money.
Through our sponsorship, many people are being nourished by the streams of God’s love and mercy. It’s Caritas (God’s love) for a person in need, and it’s Caritas (God’s love) for a sponsor- because God’s love always flows both ways!
Through CARITAS, many Catholics have found a way to personally make a difference. The impact is real!
