How Cross Catholic Outreach is making an impact
Many Cross Catholic projects focus on the needs of children. The earlier children are reached, and the earlier their material, emotional and spiritual needs are met, the better equipped they will be to lead prosperous, well-adjusted lives. Cross Catholic supports ministries that achieve this goal by offering safe shelter and a loving family environment for orphans and vulnerable children and by meeting basic needs such as food, education and health care. These children need to feel secure, they need the tools to overcome adversity, and most importantly they need a life-transforming encounter with Jesus Christ. By serving the children today, we are preparing them to create a better tomorrow.
