#iGiveCatholic is the first-ever online giving day for the Catholic community. It is a call to share our blessings with the Church and those the Church helps and supports in our communities. iGiveCatholic is a giving day created to rally the Catholic community on GivingTuesday, November 29th – a global day of giving. The goal is to come together, as a Catholic community, and support our Catholic organizations in a 24-hour period. Let's come together to share our gifts lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord. Stay tuned for more info in the coming weeks.
