Close To Our CCA Goal

Please know that the Charity Appeal is not connected to the national Catholic Charities that has supported a number of nefarious organizations.

We are closer to our goal than we have been in several years. Please consider a sacrificial offering to help others in thanksgiving for all the good things our Lord has given you. We only have a short way to reach our goal.

All Donations to the Charity Appeal support ministries and programs in our Diocese. Your gift helps Catholic ministries that assist needy people in our local area.

“Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’ He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.” Mt 25:44-45

Philip F. Lawler
Philip F. Lawler is editor of Catholic World News, the first English-language Catholic news service operating on the internet, which he founded in 1995. He is also the program director of the Center for the Restoration of Christian Culture at Thomas More College in New Hampshire.
Born and raised in the Boston area, he attended Harvard College, graduating with honors in Government in 1972. He did graduate work in political philosophy at the University of Chicago before entering a career in journalism.
Mr. Lawler has served as Director of Studies for the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think-tank based in Washington; as founder and president of a national organization of Catholic laity; and as editor of Crisis magazine. In 1986 he became the first layman to edit The Pilot, the Boston archdiocesan newspaper. From 1993 through 2005 he was editor of the international monthly magazine Catholic World Report.
Philip Lawler has been active in political campaigns, as a speechwriter and organizer, on the local, state, and national levels. He was an honorary member of the Inauguration Committees for President Ronald Reagan in 1984, and for President George Bush in 1988. In 2000 he himself was a candidate for the US Senate, running against Sen. Edward Kennedy. 
Mr. Lawler is the author or editor of ten books on political and religious topics, including The Faithful Departed, on the decline of Catholic influence in Boston; Lost Shepherd, a candid appraisal of Pope Francis; Smoke of Satan: How Corrupt and Cowardly Bishops Betrayed Christ, His Church, and the Faithful…and What Can Be Done About It; and most recently, Contagious Faith: Why the Church Must Spread Hope, Not Fear, in a Pandemic. His essays, book reviews, and editorial columns have appeared in over 100 newspapers around the United States and abroad, including the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, and Boston Globe.
He and his wife Leila (the author of God Has No Grandchildren and the Summa Domestica) have seven children and (at last count) sixteen grandchildren. The Lawlers now live in central Massachusetts.

Leila Marie Lawler
Leila Marie Lawler is a wife, mother, and grandmother. She lives in Central Massachusetts. 
Leila encountered Christianity as a high school student, was baptized, and entered the Catholic Church in 1979, the year she was married to Philip F. Lawler, noted Catholic author and editor of Catholic World News.
Leila practices “kitchen sink philosophy” at Like Mother, Like Daughter, a website for practical and theoretical insight into all aspects of daily life. She writes on everything from cooking and knitting to education and recovering what she and her daughters call “the collective memory.” Her blog Happy Despite Them offers occasional observations and essays on various topics.
The Summa Domestica: Order and Wonder in Family Life, a three-volume boxed set, is published by Sophia Institute Press. This work is a compendium of all her wit and wisdom from Like Mother, Like Daughter, organized with new material and a helpful index.
Her book, co-authored with David Clayton, The Little Oratory: A Beginner’s Guide to Praying in the Home, is published by Sophia Institute Press. Scott Hahn said of it, “How I wish I’d had this book when I first became a Catholic… This is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever seen. It is inspiring yet practical, realistic yet revolutionary. If one book has the potential to transform the Catholic family (and society), this is it.”
Her book God Has No Grandchildren: A guided reading of Pius XI’s encyclical Casti Connubii, On Chaste Marriage (2nd edition) is available from Arouca Press.
Leila is a Fellow of the Center for the Restoration of Christian Culture, a project of Thomas More college of the Liberal Arts in Merrimack, New Hampshire.
