For over 43 million Americans, there is a thin line: between eviction and home, between hunger and health, between unemployment and work, between anxiety and stability. This line is the Poverty Line. For a family of four, that line is $24,257 a year. (Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States, 2015.)
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty by funding community programs that encourage independence. You are essential to its success. Your generous donations will give those in poverty the support they need to make lasting changes.
Together, we can make a difference in families and communities across the United States. Please donate prayerfully and generously. Thank you.

To date we have held three training sessions for Parish Catechetical Leaders and three catechist training sessions for those who use OSV and Loyola parish books. The curriculum stems from the Archdioceses’ Catechetical Framework and six tasks of catechesis from the Catholic Church’s catechetical documents. Become familiar with the Four Big Ideas that will stretch across all phases of faith formation throughout the life cycle. Email us at email@example.com or ask your DRE.
