​Caritas 60th Annual Celebration: In recognition of Catholic Charities' 60th anniversary, we held a day-long series of events with the theme of “Pathways of Hope and Opportunity” on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 in downtown San Jose. It was an extraordinary day of acknowledgement and vision-setting as both a participant and financial supporter.
These events engaged many diverse constituencies and communities who are connected to Catholic Charities. We convened clients, practitioners, policy makers, funders and community leaders from a wide-range of cultures and professions. The full day included a Social Policy Breakfast, Out of Poverty Summit, Mass at St. Joseph’s Basilica, and concluded with an entertaining dinner at the Marriott Hotel. The theme of the evening was “Inspiration and Innovation.” The goal was to celebrate our 60 year legacy, but more importantly, launch the next phase of a community-wide effort to help people out of poverty and onto a path of opportunity and hope.
