NO to CCHD on Aug. 10 and 11

Kudos to our colleague over at Restore DC Catholicism.  I have "copied" this from her website and I encourage all of you NOT to donate. 

Discussing the key points problems does not seem to work.  Shame does not work.  Therefore, withholding money is the last resort.


In the Archdiocese of Washington, the second collection for the Masses of Aug 10-11 will be for something called "Communications and Human Development". It's really for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. In recent years, the CCHD has garnered some very bad publicity - and yes, the CCHD has earned its terrible reputation in spades. I suppose the collectors think that by obfuscating the name of the collection that they can somehow bypass the bad press and fool Catholics into donating.

We are in the process of spreading the word.  P
lease visit the sites of www.reformCCHDnow.com and www.CatholicMediaCoalition.org.

Now it's time to take action! What to do?

  1. Spread word of the existence of ReformCCHDNow.com, CatholicMediaCoalition.org and this blog so that others can avail themselves of the research contanined therein.
  2. Use social media to spread word of the boycott. It would be helpful to use the hashtag #no2cchd in your Facebook and/or Twitter messages.
  3. Questions/comments/suggestions? Please post via the comments.
  4. Above all, pray that the Lord have mercy upon those who exploit His Church for anti-God causes and that evil be expunged from this Bride of Christ.

Update on Teacher Aide from St. John the Evangelist School

According to the Maryland Court System:

Trial Date:  August 23, 2013
Trial Type: Felony Dismissal Date
Trial Time:10:00 AM
Room: 513

Trial Location:191 EAST JEFFERSON ST ROCKVILLE 20850-2325

If I understand it correctly, a  Felony Dismissal Date is a hearing where the defendant is informed of the accusations against them and the penalties that the court could impose on them if they are proved guilty of the charges that have been filed against them.  The defense attorney will do what he can to dismiss the charges but the county, if it feels it has enough of a case, can ask the judge to set a court date.

Also, some of the information regarding Mr. Delpino has been changed/updated from the original posting on the Court website.  He is now listed as follows:

Address:51 MONROE STREET #600
City:ROCKVILLEState:MDZip Code:20850 - 0000

Who is Bob McCarty, why should we be concerned and the connection with Washington?

There’s a guy you’ve never heard of who runs an organization you’ve never heard of but it is likely because of him that the Catholic Church has not taken a stand against the radicalization of the Girl Scouts and now the Boy Scouts.

Robert McCarty is the Executive Director of the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry. It should be understood that McCarty’s group is closely connected to, if not officially part of, the Catholic Church. It is an independent, non-profit corporation whose board of directors, nonetheless, is controlled by representatives from 16 diocese of the Catholic Church. It’s episcopal liaison is Bishop Martin Holley of the Archdiocese of Washington DC.

He says organizations that do not admit open and avowed homosexuals are in violation of the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Supporter of ObamaCare on Archdiocese of Washington Financial Council - Shame on Cardinal Wuerl!

Well, our colleague over at Restore DC Catholicism has done some great work once again.

She has pointed out that Sr. Carol Keehan is on the Finance Council of the Archdiocese of Washington.   Really, the person who was singled out as the largest Catholic supporter of ObamaCare, which the Archdiocese is attempting to fight, is on our Finance Board.
