This spring, Catholic Relief Services invites you to honor the special people in your life. We have the perfect way to congratulate them on their first communion, confirmation, ordination, marriage or graduation.

Now you can commemorate these special occasions with a CRS Celebration Gift by making a donation in your loved one’s name. Our gift cards help you celebrate these beautiful sacraments by helping poor families overseas.

Please take a look at the CRS cards you can choose from. We invite you to add your own personal message to each card you choose. You can also download a beautiful prayer for each blessed occasion.

Remember, your donation to CRS shows your loved ones that you are honoring them by sharing the goodness in your heart with the world.

On behalf of CRS and all the people who are touched by your generosity, I thank you.

May blessings overflow,

Dr. Carolyn Y. Woo
President & CEO
Catholic Relief Services
