Catholic Charities USA Veteran’s Day Message
Alexandria, VA— Rev. Larry Snyder, president of Catholic Charities USA, issued the following statement today in honor of Veteran’s Day: “All of us at Catholic Charities join our nation today as we pause in honor and remembrance of all those who serve or have served in our military. We express a deep sense of gratitude for the courage and commitment of our military men and women and their families, who sacrifice to help provide peace and justice around the world. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them today—and everyday—as we ask for God’s blessings for all of our military.” Each year, Catholic Charities agencies across the US provide help and create hope for over 10 million people regardless of religious, social, or economic backgrounds. Nearly one-fourth of local agencies provide support for veterans and military families, including housing, job training, addiction support and counseling services.
