The purpose of Parish Relations is to strengthen the relationship between Catholic
Charities Fort Worth and diocesan parishes. We’re here to assist and empower YOU
in fulfilling the Gospel call to service and the promotion of justice by:
- Engaging parishes as partners in the work of CCFW
- Helping to identify and implement ways to respond in a communal and organized
way to social and individual needs.

We would like to acknowledge two of our diocesan partners and express our sincere
gratitude for their support!
Sacred Heart Catholic Church (Wichita Falls)
has played a critical role in helping us
expand our services to the
Wichita Falls community. They are partnering with us to
TXU Energy Aid and to offer clinical counseling services. In addition,
parish houses our immigration video site where individuals can participate in a video
appointment with our staff in Fort Worth.
Heart is a key partner on the Northwest Services Strategic Planning
as we plan to open a service hub in Wichita Falls in 2014.
We partnered with St. Andrew Catholic School (Fort Worth) in
the 2012-2013 school
year to collect high need items for our neighbors
in need and offer service learning
opportunities to students. Joint
educational opportunities included a refugee simulation,
activities, and activities demonstrating the tenants of Catholic Social
Thank you to the faculty, staff, students, and families of St.
Andrew for your dedication to
serving our brothers and sisters in need!
