New hotline, volunteer effort for LA’s neediest prepares for long haul amid pandemic

As the human toll of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic grows throughout California, a partnership between the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Los Angeles, and the Knights of Columbus launched in mid-March, is playing a vital role in helping the most vulnerable members in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties.

“We just want everybody to know that the Church is here for you,” said Kathleen Domingo, senior director of the archdiocese’s Office of Life, Justice and Peace, who is heading up the emergency partnership.

As of April 6, there were more than 15,200 Californians with confirmed cases of the coronavirus (the actual figure is presumed to be around double the number) and 351 deaths from the virus.
