The Market at Gray House Receives Generous Grant Award from The Annual Catholic Appeal

The Gray House was recently awarded funding in the amount of $19,125 from the Annual Catholic Appeal. The funding will directly support our food assistance program, The Market at Gray House, which provides nutritious groceries to thousands of individuals facing food insecurity throughout the greater Springfield community on an annual basis. We are grateful to Bishop Willian Byrne, the Allocations Committee and all of the Diocese of Springfield parishioners who contributed so generously to the Annual Catholic Appeal. 

The Annual Catholic Appeal was initiated in 1959 to provide for the ever-increasing educational, human, pastoral, and spiritual needs of the people of Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire counties. Funds raised through the Appeal enable the Church to implement and administer these and other critical services in a comprehensive framework in order to carry out the work of Jesus Christ. 

Through the Annual Catholic Appeal, the Catholic Church of western Massachusetts assists elderly persons in need; families in crisis; people who are homeless, lonely, and vulnerable; youth and young adults; and our parishes and Catholic schools. The Appeal also enables the Church to promote social justice, respect for human life from birth until death, and to communicate with all who seek to hear the teachings of Jesus Christ.
