Our Program

Where Does Your Parish Want to Make a Difference?

Do you want to help rebuild Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, still shattered after last year’s devastating hurricanes? Would you like to provide educational and spiritual support to Native American reservations? Or to impoverished communities in Appalachia or along the southern U.S. border with Mexico?

Through Catholic Extension’s Parish Partnership program it is easy for your parish to support one of these missions and dozens of others that are energizing communities and transforming lives.

Partnership — Powerful and Simple.

Dedicated to building vibrant faith communities right here in the U.S. since 1905, Catholic Extension’s strength comes from the power of fellow Catholics to help one another. Parish Partnership brings together our resources with parishes, schools and communities in an easy to implement and flexible program that can transform your collection into a life-changing gift in three simple steps.
