“Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word;
always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.”
St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the Little Flower

Celebrating a Quarter Century as “The Giving Arm of the Diocese”!

The Catholic Foundation is happy to move forward into a new year to meet new goals, to provide more assistance, and to make new friends. Last year marked a quarter of a century of service to the Diocese of Pueblo. During that time, the Catholic Foundation distributed nearly $2,000,000 in grant awards throughout our vast diocese. Our outreach to the faithful extends from the far western mountains to the eastern plains of Colorado. Today, the Catholic Foundation is honored to call itself The Giving Arm of the Diocese. We thank God for the opportunity to help, in whatever small way, those Catholic organizations within our borders as we follow the Little Way of St. Therese.
