Ave Maria Press created a local chapter supporting Catholic Relief Services, an organization that helps the poor and vulnerable overseas on behalf of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The nonprofit organization responds to major emergencies, works to fight disease and poverty, and nurtures just and peaceful societies across the globe. CRS is motivated by the Gospel to preserve the dignity of all human life, to foster charity and justice, and to embody Catholic social and moral teaching.

As a local CRS chapter, employees of Ave Maria Press who are members of the chapter lobby local members of Congress on issues of funding and importance to CRS. We also participate in service projects that aid people in our local community, refugees, and other CRS causes.



Team Ave recently participated in the 2022 St. Joseph County, Indiana, CROP Hunger Walk to bring awareness to hunger in our community and throughout the world.
