Partners in Charity, formerly known as the Bishop's Fund, is the Annual Appeal for the Diocese of Worcester, serving 29 charitable, educational, and pastoral ministries. Through your generous support we are able to serve thousands of families and individuals in Worcester County through outreach, formation, evagelization, and worship.
Partners in Charity encompasses three specific areas in our diocese: Charity, Education and Ministry. Thousands of people who are served and taught by ministries and agencies supported by Partners in Charity know that the power of Christ is behind the programs that help them.
Children in parish religious education classes and Catholic schools have their eyes, hearts and minds opened to Christ. Young men receive Christ's call to serve and those who have dedicated their lives in service of the priesthood are cared for in their retirement years. Through Catholic Charities and other agencies, families and individuals have their basic needs met in a safe, welcoming and confidential environment.
These vital ministries are staffed by people who act in the spirit of Pope Francis - with love and deep devotion. Your financial and prayerful support of Partners in Charity enables them to put their faith into action and bring others to Christ.
Every gift, no matter the size, helps to bring the hope and light of Jesus Christ to many ministries and agencies we fund.
