Catholic Relief Services Helping Hands event a rousing success

Congratulations to all who participated in the very successful CRS Helping Hands event for Catholic Schools week at St. Charles Seminary! Over 800 children from local Catholic grade and high schools packaged 50,000 meals! Our seminarians assisted in every shift and loaded the trucks carrying the meals.

During the event, Archbishop Chaput announced the new partnership between 18 Philadelphia Archdiocesan high schools and CRS! Archbishop was joined in stage by Bishop Senior, Bishop McIntyre, Bishop Fitzgerald, Bishop Deliman, senior administrators from OCE, Sean Callahan (CRS President and CEO), Maureen McCullough (Regional Director of CRS), Ken Gavin, Archdiocese Communications Director and high school principals and student body presidents.
