Watch a live press conference Monday, Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. as Archbishop Nelson Pérez launches the 2021 Catholic Charities Appeal.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s most important fundraiser benefits hundreds of thousands of people through numerous organizations and ministries throughout the five-county Archdiocese.
The press conference will be held at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center, but you can watch the livestreamed video above and on Archbishop Pérez’s Facebook page.
The archbishop will be joined by William Phelan IV, president of the CCA Board of Directors, as well as representatives from appeal beneficiaries including Patrick Walsh of Martha’s Choice Marketplace, a ministry of archdiocesan Catholic Social Services, and Kathleen Clark from Lily’s Gift, which provides support to families with prenatal diagnosis, in collaboration with the archdiocesan Office for Persons with Disabilities, the Office of Life and Family and CSS.
