Delivering Food, Shelter, and Hope to the Poorest of the Poor.


"Every human being is the object of God’s infinite tenderness, and he himself is present in their lives. Jesus offered his precious blood on the cross for that person. Appearances notwithstanding, every person is immensely holy and deserves our love. Consequently, if I can help at least one person to have a better life, that already justifies the offering of my life."
—Pope Francis - Evangelii Gaudium


This season, join parishes across the U.S. and share the hope of Lent with impoverished African children through Cross Catholic Outreach.

Your sacrifice and generosity will provide incredible blessings for Father Francis and his mission to help orphans and vulnerable children in Kenya. Your gifts will empower three inspirational outreaches — St. Francis, St. Clare and St. Philomena Homes in Kenya — that help more than 1,000 orphans and vulnerable children with food, education, safe shelter and Catholic teachings.

The St. Philomena Home specializes in the care of children who are suffering with HIV/ AIDS.

Year End Giving


Your financial support is critical to rescuing more children from the bonds of poverty. A gift of just $60 can provide a child with food and education for an entire year.


Watch this video to learn more about the needs of the children and the ways you can support Fr. Francis in this incredible mission of mercy!


Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for this project incurred through June 30, 2019, the close of our ministry’s new fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
