As our name implies, Catholic Financial Life is a financial services organization that provides life insurance, annuities, and other financial solutions to Catholics and their families. An important part of our mission, however, is "serving God through serving others". Through a grassroots network of local chapters, Catholic Financial Life and its members get involved in helping others, their parishes and schools through volunteer and charitable support.
