      Donors, volunteers and staff joined Bishop McManus at an annual appreciation dinner on Thursday, Sept. 14 at Tower Hill in Boylston. Those in attendance heard how Partners in Charity helps Catholic Charities meet people’s emergency needs, in a first step to helping them become self-sufficient, the agency’s head told donors. A teenager told them the Appeal helps her – and she helped with it. Timothy McMahon, executive director of Catholic Charities, and Caitlin Moughan, who would turn 14 on in a few days, were speaking at the annual Society Appreciation Dinner. The event gave Bishop McManus an opportunity to thank those who help with the Appeal, some of whom received awards for their years of service. CLICK TITLE for story

      ...Once again, we are called to respond. I ask that we join with Catholic Dioceses around our nation in taking up a second collection for relief work in the Caribbean and Florida. Given that we have already scheduled the annual Catholic School Appeal on September 24, I ask that we prepare for a Relief Collection at all Masses on September 30 and October 1. We will also provide for an online donation form on our website at worcesterdiocese.org which can be used at any time...
