Dear Friends of Catholic Social Services,
This past fiscal year has been filled with challenges and

reduction in SNAP (Food Stamps) benefits indicates that
Pope Francis, the Bishop of Rome, recently said: “To serve many do not feel a moral responsibility to feed the
hungry. C.S.S. is blessed to stand solidly with those

Msgr. Joseph P. Kelly, V.E., M.S.W.
Diocesan Executive Director,
Pope Francis reminds us that my humanity is bound up
Catholic Social Services
with those suffering in poverty. Unfortunately, our great
Blessings and thankfully, more Blessings than challenges.
St. Francis Commons
St. Hedwig’s Village
St. Hedwig’s Village in Kingston, is the newest
permanent supportive housing facility offered by
CSS exclusively for veterans. The 14 residents who
call it home include 12 veterans, a veteran’s spouse
and a child. Our oldest resident is 92 , and the
youngest is 5. There is a waiting list of veterans who
are seeking a safe, accessible place to call home.
Thanks to the vision of Catholic Social Services, 30
formerly homeless veterans will be welcomed into
a state-of-the-art residential facility this spring with
the completion of St. Francis Commons. The $6.4
million three-story structure, under construction at
500 Penn Ave. in Scranton, will house homeless
veterans in single occupancy units.

Catholic Social Services, together with the United States Marines “Toys for Tots”
and Friends of the Poor, provided toys for 5,000 children this year. Thanks to the
generosity of Catholic Parishes and all of the individuals who contributed gifts,
there were happy children on Christmas morning.
Our wonderful volunteers are the “elves” who make it happen!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Bridge, a program of CSS,
serves 5 counties in NEPA. It served over 400 children in 2013. Its mission
is to provide children facing adversity with strong & enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that will change their lives for the
better, forever. Adult volunteers - “Bigs”, meet weekly to spend quality
time with their “Littles.” In the school-based program, teen volunteers
meet weekly with their “Littles” at after-school programs in the community. Big Brothers Big Sisters of The Bridge’s biggest annual fundraiser,
“Bowl For Kids’ Sake,” is set for March 29, 2014. For more information,

St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen
30th Anniversary
For 30 years, St. Vincent de Paul Kitchen has been a safe
place for people in need to get a hot, nutritious meal,
warm clothing, and love and companionship to nourish
their souls. To support the kitchen and commemorate
our anniversary, a Celebration of Food was held on
September 29th, 2013. The event featured food from
many local eateries, a silent auction, and entertainment.
Bishop Joseph C. Bambera was the principal speaker.
