Gift at Work

Read and Watch Why Your Gift Matters!

Vermont Catholic Charities
Rising costs, end of Covid-era programs, and other factors have heightened the needs of the population we serve and have brought new families to us for help.
Emergency Aid
George is a single father of two teenage children. He had fallen behind on rent. One of his children uses support services in the community. Therefore, George was committed to remaining in their home and community. Vermont Catholic Charities assisted with some back rent and helped him apply for additional assistance to ensure all his back rent was covered. George stated, “I am grateful for your support and relieved that my family can remain in our home.”
Communications Update ‘Coffee with Vermont Catholics’
Coffee with Archbishop Coyne launched in 2021 and featured Archbishop Christopher Coyne and Alayna Masker. Last November Denise Watson took over the co-host position. When Archbishop Coyne’s farewell episode publishes on Oct. 4, there will have been 90 episodes of the weekly series. With a new name, Coffee with Vermont Catholics will feature Watson with a special guest each week to discuss programs, project, or topics related to the Catholic Church.
As part of our effort to increase communication throughout the Diocese, almost every parish has converted to the new eCatholic site which provides online giving and is easy for parishioners to navigate. In addition, the Vermont Catholic News site launched a new notifications application that allows Catholics to get the latest news automatically delivered to the device of their choice.
Support of our facilities in need
All of our diocesan schools and several parishes received a total of $1 million in grants from the Diocese to address immediate capital needs. Many of these were immediate needs that had to be addressed to avoid additional damage and expense.
