Most Reverend Michael G. Duca,
Bishop of the Diocese of Shreveport
A Message From the Bishop
It is with my full support that I endorse the
work of Catholic Charities in the Diocese
of Shreveport for the good of those in need throughout North Louisiana. Catholic Charities
is a further extension of the Catholic Church’s
outreach to the poor by not only offering help
for their immediate needs but also by asking
the harder and more necessary question,
“What else do you need?” In asking this
further question Catholic Charities considers
how to heal the personal and institutional
problems that keep someone in need.
I am proud to have this vibrant and open organization in the diocese. I pray that each
day it will become a place of hope and support
to those in need.
Jean Dresley, Executive Director
||Welcome from the
In August of 2010, Catholic Charities of
Shreveport was born, and this year we are
proud to be celebrating our third anniversary.
We are a young but
vibrant social service
with a mission
to help the most vulnerable
among us as we heed Jesus’ call in Matthew 25: 31-46.
Unfortunately, during the difficult economic
times more and more people are coming to
us in need. Nearly one in four children in
Louisiana lives in poverty. Our programs are focused on serving those most in need --
but we cannot do this work without your help.
We hope that as you look over our website
you might be moved to help us in our work
by giving of your time, talent, money, and
most especially your prayers. God Bless
you and thank you for visiting our website.
