Since 2007, the Universidad Iberoamericana Mexico City (IBERO), Loyola University Chicago (LUC), and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago have partnered for a successful international student immersion program. To date, 162 students across many disciplines have participated, and learn how to develop their heart for service, awareness, sensitivity, commitment, critical thinking, justice, and social responsibility (especially as it relates to the phenomenon of migration in Mexico and the United States).

Catholic Charities staff members Marie Jochum and Michael Bare will be teaming up as co-hosts of our The Voice of Charity radio show! The show broadcasts live every Tuesday morning at 8:30 on WNDZ- 750 AM, and addresses important issues affecting the work of Catholic Charities and the world around us. We hope that a healthy mix of intelligence and compassion will inspire thought-provoking discussions on a wide range of topics that matter to our listeners.
November 17, 2019 is "World Day of the Poor." We invite you to mark the occasion through prayer and generosity by donating food, clothes, and Christmas gifts for children to the Catholic Charities office located at 721 N. LaSalle, Chicago. You may drop off items from 11 a.m — 2 p.m. on Sunday, November 17.

We will also be holding a brief prayer service outside of the 721 N. LaSalle offices that same day in front of the “Homeless Jesus” statue, in solidarity with more than 40 international cities (like Buenos Aires, Mexico City, Sydney, Dublin, and more) who also display a “Homeless Jesus” statue by sculptor Timothy P. Schmalz as a focal point for World Day of the Poor events.

Join tens of thousands of people around the world in sowing tangible seeds of hope with simple acts of giving and prayer on this Sunday before the start of Advent.
At Catholic Charities, it means making sure families have one.
