Catholic Social Services/Other

A vast network of social service providers based in Dioceses across the United States operate under the umbrella of Catholic Charities. Catholic Charities reported employing more than 60,000 in 2013, who served more than 9 million individuals in need. The Church also employs many men and women in Catholic newspapers, Catholic cemeteries, and in other tasks supporting the Church’s mission and its works of charity.
