F.A.Q

  • As you can imagine, the current circumstances require us to forgo our annual Saint Nicholas Dinner this year, typically an in-person event that draws 1,000+ guests. The support we received at the Saint Nicholas Dinner was crucial to our ability to serve those most in need. The Hope in Action Campaign will be a great, visible alternative to show your support for Catholic Charities and engage in our mission to serve those most in need.

  • Evening of Hope in Action will be a powerful evening of connection and inspiration in a virtual format. The spirit of our annual Saint Nicholas Dinner has inspired a creative new approach that will allow thousands more friends to join us for the premiere of a pre-recorded, produced video that will go live here on our Hope in Action website at 7pm on December 3rd, 2020. This video will feature Catholic Charities staff and programs and will serve as a “kick-off” for the following weeks of Season of Hope in Action engagement opportunities.

  • Hope is a powerful force; but hope alone will not feed, shelter and support those most in need. The ACTIONS of generous individuals, families and communities are what bring hope to life through the mission of Catholic Charities of St. Paul and Minneapolis. The 2020 Hope in Action Campaign will be a month-long opportunity to support our community’s most vulnerable neighbors. This campaign is an opportunity for us to work together to raise funds and awareness for Catholic Charities’ work. It will span the heart of the holiday season (late November – December 2020) and will feature storytelling moments, “thank yous” for our partners and a firsthand look at some of our programs and mission – an opportunity to see Hope in Action.

    2020 has been one of the most difficult years any of us can recall. COVID-19, civil unrest, inequity and economic uncertainty have changed our world in ways we never expected. Amid these historic challenges, Catholic Charities continues to what we do best: serving, helping and providing HOPE for those most need. HOPE in a warm, nutritious meal. HOPE in finding employment and health care. HOPE in a safe place to sleep and live. HOPE in the voices of neighbors advocating for justice. When the actions of generous individuals, families and organizations combine with the hope of this holiday season, there is no limit to the impact we can have.
