Pope Francis and Catholic organizations around the world responding to the needs of the poor and vulnerable, including Catholic Relief Services and Catholic Charities USA, call on you to join a global Catholic campaign to combat hunger as One Human Family, Food for All.

On December 10, Pope Francis will launch the campaign, which will encourage Catholics to participate in a global “wave of prayer,” joining our brothers and sisters in faith to pray at noon in each time zone around the world. Parishes, schools, agencies, institutions, and individuals are all invited to participate in the wave.

Prayer resources and activities that will help raise awareness about hunger in our nation and across our globe will be shared before December 2, and will be available on the Catholic Charities USA website. Please mark your calendars for December 10, as together we join Pope Francis and our Church around the world to fight hunger.
