“The Church’s love for the poor . . . is a part of her constant tradition” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2444). The Collection for the Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) provides funding for groups that create lasting change and uplift the poor in the United States. In the last five years, over 36% of CCHD’s grants have gone toward advancing education, supporting economic development, and improving housing in low-income neighborhoods. You can help participate in this tradition today. Fight poverty in America. Defend human dignity. Give to the CCHD Collection.
This collection will be taken up in the parishes in the Diocese of Yakima July 21-22. Please click on the attachments, in English and Spanish, to read a letter of support for the CCH from Bishop Joseph Tyson.
