COMMUNITY!

November 20 and 21 at all Masses or Online

Working on the Margins - The Rural Community Workers Alliance (RCWA) in Missouri helps essential workers by advocating on their behalf for safe working conditions, just wages and fair treatment from employers. When you support CCHD’s mission of working on the margins, you help groups such as RCWA advocate for the health and safety of the essential workers that we all depend on. The CCHD allocates funds to community projects that promote the mission and vision of CCHD while adhering to the moral and social teachings of the Catholic Church. The collection will be taken up on November 20-21. Please be generous!

LETTER FROM CARDINAL CUPICH

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

In his message for the Fifth World Day of the Poor, Pope Francis observes that the COVID-19 crisis, “continues to affect millions of people and, even when it does not bring suffering and death, it is nonetheless a portent of poverty.” Yet, he continues, “poverty is not the result of fate; it is the result of selfishness. It is critical, therefore, to generate development processes in which the abilities of all are valued, so that complementarity of skills and diversity of roles can lead to a common resource of mutual participation.”

For the past 50 years since the inception of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), organizations funded by CCHD lead the call for all of us to stand in solidarity with those who have been marginalized in their communities and to act against injustice. For example, the main purpose of the Coalition for Spiritual and Public Leadership (CSPL), whose membership includes parishes, institutions and communities, is to address injustice in the vision of the Gospel. In its promotion of economic justice, CSPL builds and incubates worker-owned cooperatives. One such co-op involves the worker-owners of Living La Fiesta, who shifted during the Coronavirus pandemic from preparing food to making masks for the public.

The Archdiocese of Chicago is proud that CCHD has its roots in the efforts of a Chicago priest (and later Bishop) Michael Dempsey, during the years he served as pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish on the West Side. By emphasizing self-help, participation and solidarity, CCHD continues the initiatives of Bishop Dempsey as it works to support resilient communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. To learn more about CCHD’s impact or to donate online, please visit www.CCHDChicago.org.

Please consider contributing generously to CCHD through the second collection on November 20 and 21, and thereby continue to sow the seeds of hope amongst those who find themselves on the margins in Chicagoland.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Cardinal Blase Cupich - Archbishop of Chicago
