Our History – Catholic Charities was commissioned by Bishop Emeritas Matthew H. Clark in June 1980. Saints Peter and Paul Parish (now part of Blessed Sacrament Parish) provided our first offices in Saints Peter and Paul School across High Street from the church. In 1980, our services included emergency assistance (food, clothing, prescription and housing assistance), individual and family counseling, justice and peace/parish social ministry and we served Chemung, Schuyler, Tioga, Tompkins, Steuben Counties.
