Bishops Celebrate 50 years of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development

CCHD 50 years

During the USCCB’s November General Assembly meeting, Bishop David G. O’Connell, Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), gave an inspiring presentation to the entire body of bishops to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of CCHD.

In his remarks, Bishop O’Connell shared the transformational work of CCHD’s funded organizations in communities across the country. Exemplifying the “art of encounter,” these organizations empower parents, workers, pregnant mothers, immigrants, and young adults to address the root causes of poverty.
