Calling for Nominations

Acts of Mercy occur every day. Catholic Charities invites you to nominate individuals of all ages and who share mercy. We hope by recognizing these Champions of Mercy that they will in turn to inspire others to “go and do likewise.”


Nominate who you believe exemplifies one or more of the Spiritual or Corporate Works of Mercy. As Catholic Charities serves people of all faiths, we encourage people of all faiths to participate. Catholic Charities will recognize the top six with cash awards up to $1,000 each to use to further their works of mercy. The award categories are: Youth-Individual (18 & Younger); Youth-Group (18 & Younger); Adult – Individual; Adult – Group; Congregation/Faith-based group; and Professional Organization.


Those selected for recognition will receive complimentary tickets to the Champions of Mercy Awards Dinner that will be held on Saturday, November 4, at Centre Park of West Chester, 5800 Mulhauser Road. Deadline for nominations is June 30, 2017. Those selected for recognition will be notified in July.
