Religious Liberty & Service to All

Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas is pleased to reflect the moral values of the Catholic Church in its services. Yet, in keeping with Catholic social principles, Catholic Charities shows no preference for any particular religion when serving those in need.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has expressed grave reservations about threats to religious liberty emerging in America that could compromise the value-based services of institutions like Catholic Charities of Southeast Texas.

We invite you to take a few minutes to review the bishops' concerns regarding religious freedom and lend your voice of support and your prayers to the chorus of those asking God and national leaders to help our nation remain faithful to its heritage. Thank you!
