Catholic Social Ministries

What We Support

The Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend Catholic Social Ministries participates in the following initiatives:

Catholic Relief Services Chapters

Join a Movement to Change the World

Join Catholic Relief Services as we build a movement of people across the country – and right here in Indiana! – addressing the world’s most pressing needs.

CRS Chapters are communities of volunteers who take meaningful action to make the world a better place and to support our global family through advocacy and community giving actions. Chapters are local – bringing together people in parishes or across the diocese – but have global impact.
