Fraternal Outreach

Live out your Catholic values and create lasting connections.

At Catholic Order of Foresters, we understand the importance of the Catholic values that shape your life. Our Fraternal Outreach programs empower our members to foster connections and growth in their faith. They are an extension of who we are. They are more than just products; they are our Catholic values in action.

Interested in holding a Matching Funds event?

Local courts may hold only one Matching Funds event per year, and each event must be approved. Contact Judy James at for any questions!

Our members greatly appreciate when the High Court approves these events. Everyone works to bring the court and families together for a good cause. Being able to donate money that does not have to come out of the parish account can further support programs like CCD and Religious Education. Giving the gift of educating our youth about our Catholic faith is rewarding.
