  • Are you asking about the organization Catholic Charities or charities that are Catholic? Catholic Charities has over 1700 local agencies but there are also other groups/orders that run medical clinics, schools, orphanages, etc.


    There is also the Society of St. Vincent de Paul which is quite large.
