Catholic Education

During the 2021 – 2022 academic year, Archdiocese Catholic schools experienced a 5% increase in enrollment, the highest increase in 40 years. Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic schools educate the next generation of Catholics by providing an educational experience grounded in faith and academic excellence.

Your support of the Archdiocese of Chicago helps Catholic schools provide excellence in faith-based education, as well as social and emotional support during a challenging time.

Ministry Support

When you partner with the Archdiocese of Chicago, you support parish-based ministries like food pantries and soup kitchens that serve our neighbors in need. This includes Most Blessed Trinity in Waukegan, which has seen the number of families they serve increase from 250 to 500 per week during the pandemic.

Thanks to vital ministries like Most Blessed Trinity, the community has a lifeline to ensure their basic human needs are met with compassion.

“The archdiocese is an integral part of the fabric of this city. Many thousands of Chicagoans — Catholic or not — are touched by the archdiocese every day. The Catholic Church assists people with issues around food insecurity, housing, healthcare, education and safety.”
