December E-News

Dear Friend,

Our hearts are full as we prepare for the celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The staff at CCANO has been busy since Thanksgiving ensuring that our clients are fed and provided for this Christmas. I hope the stories herein inspire you this holiday season.

Thank you for all that you do for Catholic Charities!

Happy Santas Adjust to Continue Christmas Tradition

 December 2020 Padua Happy Santas


Despite the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic and its negative implications for the state’s hospitality industry, Happy Santas, sponsored by the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation, joined together to collect gifts and fulfill Christmas wish lists for residents at Padua House, a residential program of Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans (CCANO) for those with profound disabilities and intellectual challenges.

Instead of their traditional drop off atop the Drago’s Seafood Restaurant fire truck, they pivoted to fulfill clients’ digital wish lists via Amazon.

CCANO President and CEO Sister Marjorie Hebert said, “Despite a devastating year for the hospitality industry in New Orleans, the folks at the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation put their faith in action and stepped up to fulfill the Christmas wishes of our Padua House clients. We are eternally grateful for their selflessness this holiday season and hope that New Orleanians will continue the cycle of giving by supporting this important foundation."

Founded in 2006 by a select group of hospitality industry leaders, the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation is dedicated to supporting Louisiana's hospitality industry workforce and strengthening Louisiana’s hospitality industry.
