Collection for CCHD will be Nov. 17-18

Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

May God bless you! This weekend, we will soon take up the national collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD). Your support for this collection brings change to communities across the country and empowers those living in poverty. Your support also goes a long way to create communities that are more just and welcoming to those who live trapped in the cycle of poverty. In addition to making an impact nationally, those living in poverty in our own diocese are empowered through the 25 percent share of the collection that stays here.

Examples of local projects your donations support include Doors to Hope, which empowers students in the Latino community with knowledge, skills and support so that they are more successful in schools and that provides tutors to support parents with integration into the community. CCHD donations also will fund the expenses needed to establish and administer a new mental health and substance abuse training effort for the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for one year.

Please prayerfully consider how you are able to help CCHD this year. If you would like more information about the collection and the people it supports, visit

You and your families are in my prayers.

Sincerely yours in our Lord,

Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D. Archbishop of Louisville
