Cross Catholic Outreach

Delivering food, shelter and hope to the poorest of the poor.

Boca Raton, FL   |  http://www.crosscatholic.org

Mission

Cross Catholic Outreach is a ministry that serves the poorest of the poor internationally by channeling aid through dioceses, parishes, and Catholic missionaries, cost-effectively helping the poor break the cycle of poverty while advancing Catholic evangelization. True change comes from within. Physical change is not complete without sharing the Gospel. In order to break the cycle of poverty, we must first start with the heart. This refers to the active combination of word and deed; “holistic ministry". We must share the hope and good news of the Gospel alongside our social work in order to see the Holy Spirit's transformative power. Neither side of our ministry is complete without the other. We must address both to see a true transformation and to end the plague of extreme poverty.

9001 – FOOD FOR THE HUNGRY – WORLDWIDE

At this moment, hungry children throughout the developing world are praying for their next meal. You can be God’s instrument of mercy to answer their cries for food. With your help, Cross Catholic Outreach can distribute and fund thousands of meals through a network of schools, orphanages, rescue centers, community-based missions, and local parishes around the world. Help us fill empty stomachs and heal hurting hearts by feeding the poorest of the poor in the name of Christ

Population(s) Served
Adults

This project will provide daily
meals and other support for
both physically disabled and
vulnerable children at a Catholic
boarding school.
This project exists to educate handicapped
children while meeting their
emotional needs.

Population(s) Served

This project will provide dependable water
sources for impoverished rural communities
suffering from thirst, waterborne illness
and a lack of modern infrastructure.
Your gift can help fund the digging of a
deep and secure well, the installation of a
communitywide water system, or the repair
or expansion of a currently existing source.
Your gift may also support related water
and health training. This empowers
communities to take ownership of their
water sources and maintain them for the
long term.

Population(s) Served
Age groups

In the remote village of Impaputo, the HIV/AIDS crisis has left a devastating trail of orphans and sick, vulnerable villagers. In addition, most families rely on subsistence farming for survival, so a continuous drought has left a high number of parents unemployed and with very poor living conditions. The Missionary Sisters of the Precious Blood are reaching out to these children through the Impaputo Day Care Center.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Orphans
People with HIV/AIDS
