CCHD Collection - November 18

The work of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development is made possible by the generous donations of Catholic parishioners whose financial gifts in the annual CCHD collection, and at other times of the year, become the tools of self-reliance, self-sufficiency and self-determination for people who are motivated to break out of the cycle of poverty. This year, the annual collection will be on November 18.

Through grants, our diocese has the opportunity to provide assistance to many local self-help, community organizations working to empower the poor to fight against the root causes of poverty. The amount we have to give depends on the generosity of Catholics during the annual collection.

If you would like to have a speaker come to your parish from one of our committee members or a local CCHD-funded group, please contact Linda Batton at

Packets containing posters, flyers, and envelopes will be mailed to parishes within six weeks prior to the collection on November 18. A parish guide contains bulletin announcements, prayers, and program suggestions. For downloadable parish materials and more information about CCHD, click here.
