Archbishop Wuerl -- Shut Down CCHD NOW! Then Reform It!

All members of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have been asked to respond by Friday, August 27, to a confidential report on the CCHD. The document—“The Review and Renewal of the Catholic Campaign for Human Deveopment”—was prepared in response to bishops’ concerns that the CCHD has strayed from its original and become too closely involved with radical political movements.

Although the “Review and Renewal” document has gone through 5 successive drafts, a number of bishops within the USCCB appear unsatisfied with the document, and supporters of the CHD are fearful that at their November meeting, the US bishops may call for sweeping changes in the program.

For more, go to Catholic World News for the complete article.

Archbishop Wuerl, many of us have called for a total revamp of CCHD. The only way to revamp it is to shut it down and start from scratch.

I know that it has not been reported in the Standard or Catholic News Service, but the word is out. It is time for you to help shut it down.
