CCHD collection be taken up Nov. 23-24
For nearly 50 years, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has been the official domestic anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic bishops.
Raising public awareness about poverty and its causes and working to break the cycle of poverty in the United States, the annual collection will be taken up in parishes throughout the diocese the weekend of Nov. 23-24.
More than 38 million people live in poverty in the U.S. This collection helps community leaders who work to expand access to affordable housing, health care, and education.
The collection also supports the development of worker-owned businesses, and advocates for changes to structures that keep people in poverty.-Catholic Missourian
