Thank you to the faith filled parishioners of Mary Immaculate who so kindly and attentively attended the first Parish Outreach & Awareness Reception (POAR) last Wednesday evening at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Farmers Branch.  We were overwhelmed by the amazing turnout and the evening was an overall success!

Catholic Charities of Dallas would also like to thank Father Michael Forge and the very professional parish staff for their wonderful hospitality. We had an inspiring evening while sharing the good news of how together we can help those in need in our community.

The next POAR reception is being planned as we speak,and numerous parishes have already requested one to be scheduled!  So, make sure and check back for the next POAR Reception date to attend!  Visit for the latest information!

If a group from your parish would like to request a POAR Reception at your parish, let us know and we will plan one exclusively for you and your group! If you have any questions or are interested in getting involved, please contact Maureen Dunlap, our Special Projects and Volunteer Coordinator, at
