Catholic Social Services
In support of our annual Fall Sign of Hope Appeal, Catholic Social Services is launching 22 Days of Hope. Throughout October, this series will highlight the 20 ministries that count on the generous contributions to the Sign of Hope in order to serve the most vulnerable and marginalized within the central Alberta region.
It is the Spirit of God who patiently, but persistently, inspires us toward goodness and greater fulfillment; it is He who quietly resides within us, always.
"The doors that we open at Catholic Social Services are precisely doors of mercy that enable an all-important transition for the people we serve. A transition from what can be very tough places into a space of welcome, of love, and of assistance."
From a new Agency logo to events past and present, CSS CEO Stephen Carattini tackled a couple of topics during his speech at our annual Fall Celebration on Thursday, September 22.
“The well, like an oasis, is a potent symbol of life as it provides water for our physical well-being. It also provides a place where we encounter one another and we learn how to live in community. And finally, the well is a place of spiritual healing; a place where forgiveness is practiced and hearts are opened to God’s Mercy.”
