PSM Connect

Working together, we serve as the hands and feet of Christ to bring God’s mercy to the most vulnerable among us.

PSM (Parish Social Ministry) Connect is an event hosted by Catholic Charities to educate and inform parish pastors, social ministers, and other parish leaders regarding the services offered by Catholic Charities. We will explore ways we can work together to help those in need, while incorporating Catholic Social Teaching and tenets of our faith.
