Annual Report 2018
Catholic Relief Services would not be able to offer help and hope to millions around the world without donors like you. We share our commitment to the teachings of the Church—to uphold the dignity of every person, to help the poor, the hungry, the sick, the vulnerable and the refugee.
I am grateful for your solidarity. Parishes, dioceses, schools, families, foundations and charitable organizations, and faithful individuals all make a difference! It is an honor to join you in service to God’s children overseas. I am also deeply grateful for the U.S. government and others who trust us to steward public grants for life-saving programs in vulnerable communities around the globe.
As Chair of the CRS Board, I am humbled by the many supporters who pray for us, volunteer with us, and share the news about our mission and the life-changing results of our work.
May God bless all of you.
Bishop Gregory John Mansour
This year, together, we have acted more boldly than ever before to advance our vision of a world in which all people have opportunities to fulﬁll their God-given human potential. Every day, the work you make possible revolves around human dignity.
The dignity of shelter, food and water. The dignity of health and education. The dignity of peace, justice and equality. We pray, plan and act for long-term, lasting transformation on a global scale to fulﬁll God’s call to care for the world and all humanity.
You are moving our mission forward, and we are both thankful and inspired.
Peace & Light,
Sean L. Callahan
