Memorial & Honor Gifts

Memorial & Honor Gifts

Memorial gifts are a special way to acknowledge a friend or a loved one who has passed away. Honor gifts, similarly, are a meaningful way to mark special milestones—births, baptisms, graduations, confirmations, marriages, significant birthdays and more. Comfort a loved one, or celebrate one of life's many joys by donating to Catholic Charities today. We will send the designated person a card without disclosing the amount.
