Welcome to the new crs.org. We’re glad you’re here! As a member of our always growing family, we hope you’ll visit often.

Our website relaunch comes just days before the World Meeting of Families convenes in Philadelphia. Held every 3 years since 1994, the gathering gives Catholic families the opportunity to pray, learn and celebrate the gift of family.

Every day, Catholic Relief Services helps families thrive in more than 100 countries. Our programs in emergency response and recovery, agriculture and health serve more than 85 million people across five continents. We also help Catholic families in the United States live out their faith through programs like CRS Rice Bowl.

Our faith teaches us that we are one human family. That’s why CRS works to make lasting connections with the families we serve both in the United States and overseas. 

In the Get Involved section of our website, you’ll find ways to pray, learn, participate, advocate and give. And if you’re attending the World Meeting of Families, you can visit us at the CRS booth or help us pack 200,000 meals for needy families at our Helping Hands event.  

Every member of our CRS family is important—we can’t do our work without you. So please reach out and tell us how we’re doing. You can connect with us on social media where you’ll find stories and pictures of the people we serve.

The theme of this year’s World Meeting of Families is “Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive.” Thank you for helping us grow healthy communities all over the world with your support and prayers.
