Diocesan Directors

Catholic Relief Services extends its thanks to our Diocesan Directors for helping Catholics in the United States live out their faith for those in greatest need around the world. Your compassion and commitment make it possible for CRS to advance the Church’s global mission and vision, to advocate on international issues and to provide updates on our activities to U.S. archdioceses and dioceses.

Diocesan Directors educate Catholics about Catholic social teaching, social justice and CRS’ efforts around the world on behalf of the Church in the United States. Their understanding and support of our work is pivotal to mobilizing passionate people across the nation to act on behalf of global partnerships and platforms that address hunger, poverty and migration.
