View this email in your browser
Dear Friends of Catholic Charities of Central Florida,

What are you thankful this year? I am thankful for you and so many blessings including faith in our God and his son, Jesus Christ, my family, our coworkers and volunteers at Catholic Charities of Central Florida.

I am also thankful to be able to serve our brothers and sisters who come to Catholic Charities during a time of great trial. We are honored to accompany the families and individuals on their journey that has led them to our doors of mercy.
While the Jubilee of Mercy has ended, our works of mercy will continue and we are privileged for the opportunity to share God’s love with these hard working men and women who grace us every day.
Join us in showing our clients God’s love and mercy by participating in 8 great ways to make the season brighter for families in need.

God bless you today and always,
Gary Tester
Executive Director
