We are in the midst of a global pandemic that is affecting the way we support our clients and partners. Catholic Charities continues to put faith into action to serve the most vulnerable in our community.
However, in order to protect the health and safety of our clients and staff, we are announcing some immediate changes to how we serve our community.
We are postponing all events, in-person meetings, programs, and classes for the remainder of March. This includes:
Black & White Ball originally scheduled for March 21. A new date will be announced.
Workforce Development Class scheduled for the week of March 23.
All ESOL Classes at all locations.
Camp I Am Special Super Saturday scheduled on March 28.
Our staff is shifting to virtual work as of March 16, 2020, and we are closing our physical office to all clients and visitors. We will still be available remotely during our regular office hours of Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM, via phone, email, and virtual meetings. Our staff will attempt to continue to serve clients as effectively as possible.
The Catholic Charities food pantry will only operate on Wednesdays and Fridays, but we have designed it in such a way that will limit physical contact. The food distribution will be from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The pantry is located at 1470 West 13th Street, Jacksonville, 32209, on the campus of St. Pius V Catholic Church.
