Catholic Family Center (CFC) was founded in 1917 “to assist immigrants, find employment for men released from prison, serve unmarried mothers and their infants, and provide material goods for the poor.” Over the past 100 years we have continued this work, and have added and evolved many additional programs to meet the changing needs of our community.
Join our Family as we celebrate our Centennial and look forward to the next 100 years. Together, we can transform our city. Together, we can provide help that works and hope that lasts. For 100 more years.
Special thanks to our generous sponsors.
Join us on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at the Kodak Theatre On the Ridge Rochester.
Support us once again to end hunger in our community. Join your friends for soup donated by area chefs and select a handmade, one of a kind bowl created by local artists who wish to remind us that you can make a difference for someone whose bowl this evening is empty.
Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort that raises awareness and money to address homelessness and hunger in towns and cities across the nation. About 400 guests will pay to attend a simple supper of bread and soup. During the event, each guest will pick a bowl to keep and bid on the art work.
Proceeds benefit people in crisis served by Catholic Family Center programs throughout Monroe County. Enjoy a delicious dinner of soup and bread, as well as local beer, wine, delectable desserts, LIVE music, and a silent auction filled with beautiful works of art.
Online registration we be available in the coming months.
