Catholic Charities Coronavirus Update – Thank You for Your Support!

Catholic Charities, Diocese of Paterson Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update April 15, 2020 Dear Friends of Catholic Charities, We hope that you had a joyous Easter, though certainly different, and perhaps more challenging than ever before. With the pandemic continuing to spread throughout the tri-state area, Catholic Charities has actually seen an increase in the need for our services, especially our food pantries. Prior to the pandemic, 80% of those who came into our pantries worked one or multiple jobs to provide for their families.   Now, we are seeing small business owners and others who have recently been laid off. We do all we can to promote dignity and respect, and we know that we are all just one moment away from needing the support of an organization like ours.

Salesian Family solidarity in action during Covid-19 times

Effective compassion from China province to Milan province China Province, 25 March 2020 — With the fast evolving and changing global situation of the COVID19 pandemic, today there is already not one of the 23 countries in our EAO region excluded, since Myanmar too confirmed its first two cases yesterday. With many countries, millions of people, including also schools and parish churches going into lock-down, we are struck by a wide variety of reactions. Many of us had offered the Rosary with the Rector Major and his councillors yesterday in 5 language from the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Rome, and concluded with the Entrustment to Mary Help of Christians. It is amazing that in this situation through the Salesian Family network no fewer than four different groups of the Salesian Family in China province volunteered to help the Salesian Family members in Italy. Thanks to the indication of the Vicar of the Rector Major, all ‘benefactors’ were directed to the epicenter in Lombardy. We feel deeply touched by the following messages from China province lay people living the spirit of Don Bosco: “Some people here in China province are talking about collecting donations and sending them to the Rector...
