During COVID-19, the Ladies of Charity of the Diocese of Pittsburgh have continued to do what they always do: looking after the elderly and ill, feeding the hungry, providing older people with emergency funds, clothing children and more.

“It’s for anyone that needs help or home care or emergency funds. We’re not just there for Catholics. We help anybody in any community,” said Peggy Keene, a member of Word of God Parish in Swissvale and president-elect of the national board of Ladies of Charity USA. She is also coordinator of the national Ladies of Charity Caregiving office.

The Pittsburgh chapter is the largest in the United States, with about 1,400 members. A half dozen parishes also have strong chapters of the Junior Ladies of Charity.
