2018 Catholic Charities Ball

Encountering Each Other in Christ
through Catholic Charities in Arlington

During the Catholic Charities Ball, held on Friday, February 2nd, the latest agency video was debuted. The video, entitled "Encountering Each Other in Christ", featured three of Catholic Charities’ vital, life-sustaining programs: the Mother of Mercy Free Medical and the Prison Ministry Welcome Home Re-entry Program – both of which are new – and the Loaves & Fishes Pantry in Front Royal.

This year, more than 950 guests and young adults participated in the Ball, which raised more than $1,000,000 of the nearly $8,000,000 in contributions received annually to support the delivery of 17 programs in the 21 counties and seven cities of the Diocese of Arlington.

(working or non-working cars accepted)

Navigating Northern Virginia without a vehicle can keep people from accessing jobs, and the opportunity to move out of poverty. A car can transform lives and help people support their families, reduce their reliance on subsidies and become more financially secure.
