Ss. Mary & Joseph Catholic Church
Outreach: Catholic Charities

Catholic Charities is the largest private network of social service organizations in the United States, consisting of 1700 local offices and serving more than 7.8 million people of all faiths each year.

In the Diocese of Springfield, Catholic Charities is organized in seven regional offices.  Our local office is located in Carlinville itself, providing services to Macoupin, Montgomery, Greene, Jersey, and Calhoun counties.

Locally or through its larger local and national network of cooperating agencies, Catholic Charities provides adoption, counseling programs, day care, senior services and guardianship, health care, residential care, foster care, independent living, special education, emergency shelter care, family preservation services, food and clothing distribution, crisis assistance, and low-cost prescription assistance.

Catholic Charities serves all those who are in need.  To do this, Catholic Charities relies not only on its skilled and dedicated staff, but also on hundreds of volunteers, advisory board members, and donors in local communities.

In Carlinville, Catholic Charities provides housing for the Carlinville Area Food Pantry, which is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-11am and on Wednesdays from 2-4pm.  Catholic Charities also maintains its own food pantry, The Harvest Pantry, which can be accessed anytime by those not meeting the residential guideline requirements for the Carlinville Area Food Pantry.  Donations for either pantry are accepted at Ss. Mary and Joseph Church or at the pantry itself during business hours.  Carlinville Catholic Charities also hosts a thrift store which is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 3pm, and on Saturday from 9am to noon.

Ss. Mary and Joseph Church hosts an annual fund raising banquet for Carlinville Catholic Charities in the fall.  Tickets may be purchased by calling Carlinville Catholic Charities at (217) 854-4511.
