History & Mission
Since 1917 the Catholic Charities Bureau has been providing services to the poor, the disadvantaged, the disabled, the elderly and children with special needs as an expression of the social ministry of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Superior.
With more than 50 programs serving more than 10,500 people, Catholic Charities Bureau provides comprehensive health and human services for those in need regardless of race, color, national origin or religion.
It is the mission of Catholic Charities:
Under the pastoral leadership of our Diocesan Bishop, to carry on the redeeming work of our Lord by reflecting gospel values and the moral teachings of the church.
To meet the critical needs and issues of our society through the use of our gifts and resources, by mobilizing the Christian community in partnership with private and public enterprise.
To collaborate with all people of goodwill to alleviate human suffering, by sponsoring direct service programs for the poor, the disadvantaged, the disabled, the elderly, and children with special needs.
To create an environment of human dignity based on mutual respect, understanding, and trust. We profess the dignity of each person as a creation of God. This truth becomes the foundation of our great respect and love of each individual.
To translate our mission and vision into goals, commitments, and action.
