When you give to the Diocese of Greensburg, you are ensuring the continuation of our work—ministering to thousands of people in communities spread across four counties. Read on to learn more about how your gifts are put to use to grow Christ's Church and minister to those in need.
Catholic Charities serve all those in need in our community, regardless of religious affiliation. We assist thousands of families and individuals who come to us for help by providing:
- Emergency financial assistance for basic needs such as food, heat, electricity, water and prescriptions.
- Counseling services that support families, couples and individuals in their goals to achieve mental and emotional well-being.
- Adoption and foster care services that provide permanent and loving homes for children.
- Education to the parishes and developing networks of local leadership that will advocate for the most vulnerable among us.
Last year, 14,308 people in the diocese received emergency financial assistance with food, utility payments, shelter and other basic necessities from Catholic Charities.
The Catholic schools of the diocese shape the faith, lives and minds of students, inspiring them to become contributing members and leaders within our community. Diocesan schools:
- Ensure that students maximize their potential by providing excellent educational environments for the formation of faith and academic achievement.
- Provide safe and caring environments rooted in the beliefs of the Catholic faith.
- Promote a spirit of justice and community service with a global perspective, which gives students' lives passion and purpose.
More than 3,100 students attend elementary and secondary Catholic schools in our diocese.

Increase Your Impact
Our diocese feeds the hungry in body and the hungry in soul, and we could not do it without your support. However, we know how hard it can be to balance your desire to help support our schools, parishes and Catholic Charities with your need to ensure your own financial future is secure.
Fortunately, there is a way to support the Church without giving up any assets today: It is called a legacy gift. Unlike money you give for the annual appeal or your weekly offertory, a legacy gift is made through your estate and we do not receive your gift until you have passed away. With a legacy gift, you can ensure that your family is provided for and then leave a percentage to the Church to support our work for years to come.
There are a variety of simple and straightforward ways to make a legacy gift to the Church. To discover which gift is the right one for you, contact Joseph DiMario at 724-552-2502 or email@example.com today.
