Catholic Campaign for Human Development 2020 (CCHD)

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church

Pope Francis said that, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the Gospel at work and Catholic social teaching in action. CCHD practices the principles the Church teaches, especially: the option for the poor, solidarity, subsidiarity and participation. Working on the margins, CCHD defends human life and dignity every day, in countless ways, all across our nation.

Jesus’ command to his disciples: You yourselves give them something to eat! … means working to eliminate the structural causes of poverty and to promote the integral development of the poor.

Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium CCHD’s


More Important Than Ever CCHD was established in 1969 to empower groups of poor and low-income people to address the root causes of poverty in their com-munities. CCHD has provided over 9,000 grants to self-help organizations led by poor persons. On Sunday, November 22, 2020, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with CCHD in the Second Collection at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Envelopes are available in the pews if you want to use them.
