Special Appeal: Cross International Catholic Outreach's priority is to help "the poorest of the poor." Our ministry began in Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and home to some of the most destitute people in our modern world. Efforts have since grown to reach those suffering extreme poverty in other Caribbean countries as well as countries throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Cross International Catholic Outreach locates needy church-based ministries serving the poor and distributes material aid through their existing programs. In this way, we can supply meaningful help where it is needed most. In all our work we remain dedicated in our service to the Lord as good stewards of his resources in every challenge we seek to overcome.Bulletin Inserts, New Roman Missal: Each week for the next several weeks, we are presenting a series of informational materials on the New Roman Missalas inserts to the bulletin. Please take time to read each one carefully
