About Us

In 1991, Catholic social service agencies were gathered together to form Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Erie. 

Together, the affiliate agencies that form Catholic Charities include: Harborcreek Youth Services, St. Martin Center, Catholic Charities Counseling and Adoption Services (CCCAS), and Better Housing in Erie; Prince of Peace Center (Farrell), Good Samaritan Center (Clearfield), St. Elizabeth Center (Oil City), and Catholic Rural Ministry in Potter and Venango counties.

In addition, the Diocese’s commitment to respecting the dignity of all human life gave rise to the evolution of two nursing homes: Saint John XXIII (Hermitage), and Christ the King Manor (DuBois), as well as its Office of Social Justice and Life, Office of Disabilities Ministries and Ministry with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing; The Family Life Office, and The Office of Diocesan and International Missions.

Guided in faith by the Holy Spirit, Catholic Charities agencies, ministries and programs continue to be witnesses and servants of Jesus Christ, committed to the sacredness of all human life and the betterment of society.
