Dear Monsignor McNamee,

I am writing to you with a heart full of thanks and  gratitude! Gene and Isabel Rice blessed us with their outstanding efforts in the Adopt a Family effort this year. Their work and the generosity of the people at the Cathedral are helping so many parents to provide gifts and necessities for their children.

Your parishioners’ generous Spirit was abundant again this year with toys, bikes and gifts for 217 families. It takes thousands of hours, over 1,200 volunteers, and over $300,000 in donations to make our Christmas Connections program a success each year. This year, with your support, CCA helped more than 748 families (3,256 individuals) this holiday season. 

These families who received your gifts are filled with joy, and we, at the Catholic Charities Atlanta, are uplifted by the opportunity to help our clients

We are deeply grateful to all of you.


Vanessa Russell

Chief Executive Officer, Catholic Charities of Atlanta
