Delivering Food, Shelter, and Hope to the Poorest of the Poor.



 “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” - Matthew 16:24

We invite you to share the hope of Lent with impoverished African children through Cross Catholic Outreach’s “Carry the Cross” campaign. This year, we are partnering with Fr. Francis at St. Francis, St. Clare in Kenya to help orphans and vulnerable children.


Father Francis

Father Francis

Thanks to the compassion and vision of Father Francis, more than 900 children have been rescued from Kenya’s most dangerous streets. At St. Francis and St. Clare Homes, orphans and vulnerable children are given food, education, safe shelter and solid Catholic formation — all with limited resources! Your financial support is critical to rescuing more children from the bonds of poverty.


Your parish has the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with hurting children who are longing for love. By participating in this campaign, you will help Fr. Francis carry the cross of Kenya’s children!

Our Promise to You! Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred for this project during the current calendar year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
