CCHD Reacts to Call for Reform

The Bishops from the sub-committee have reacted to the 'call for reform'

Bishop Morin calls claims against CCHD's work 'outrageous'
Members of the U.S. bishops' subcommittee overseeing the Catholic Campaign for Human Development reassured their fellow bishops and donors that "no group that opposes Catholic social or moral teaching is eligible for funding" from their domestic anti-poverty campaign.

Bishop Roger P. Morin of Biloxi, Miss., subcommittee chairman, stressed in a Nov. 17 report to the U.S. bishops at their fall general assembly in Baltimore that accusations CCHD is "providing funds to groups that are pro-abortion or groups that are not in support of the family ... and other untruths" are "outrageous claims."
