2018 Annual Gathering


For more than 100 years, CCUSA’s Annual Gathering has been the preeminent convening for Catholic Charities professionals, volunteers and partners to advance our work, strategize about poverty reduction and celebrate our shared identity. Attendees come away with innovative program ideas, templates for future work and new skills to meet the needs of those we serve.
