Supplies Needed for Back to School - How You Can Help

Catholic Charities will be assisting our children and parents to prepare the 2023-24 academic school year and it will be here sooner than we think!

We are asking for your participation by providing children with their basic school supplies, backpacks, pencils, erasers, pens, subject tablets, colorful markers, pencil boxes, glue, etc.

Catholic Charites will distribute your school supplies to parents participating in our monthly Parenting Zoom group, which includes clients from our 4 offices. The school supplies will also be distributed to clients who receive other services at Catholic Charities.

If you prefer to send a check send it to Catholic Charities 331 Main Street, Norwich CT 06360 and on the memo line identify “School Supplies.”

In addition to the Norwich office the “School Supplies” can be delivered to the New London office, 28 Huntington Street, the Willimantic office, 88 Jackson Street, and the Middletown office, 16 Stack Street.



Thank you for putting a smile on the faces
of our deserving children and their parents
as they get ready for a new and exciting school year!

'Male and female He created them'
  You could hear a pin drop.     That is what I thought as I witnessed 185 teachers, administrators, priests and staff from the nine parochial elementary schools listen in rapt attention and deep concern as Theresa Farnan, PhD, described the confusion and sometimes the horrors inflicted on adolescents under the label of “gender-affirming care” in the public schools.   A fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center focusing on the challenges of gender ideology as part of the Person and Identity Project, she has co-author...
