Our office represents Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Pontifical Mission Societies. We also work closely with the U.S. Catholic Bishops’ Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development, which has great resources for parishes and schools wishing to implement Catholic social teaching.

Follow the links in the right navigation menu for more details and resources pertaining to each organization.

CCHD - Catholic Campaign for Human Development

A national program of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops supports the efforts of low-income people seeking to change the social, political and economic conditions that perpetuate poverty. It began in 1970 in all dioceses as a commitment to promote social and economic justice by addressing the root causes of poverty. Through the archdiocesan Build Hope collection in September, CCHD provides grants to groups of low-income people working for social change and also educates Catholics about Catholic social doctrine and its applications.

CRS - Catholic Relief Services Grants and Programs

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the motivating force behind the activities and programs of Catholic Relief Services as it pertains to the alleviation of human suffering, the development of people and the fostering of charity and justice in the world. CRS has operations in nearly 100 countries around the world assisting people on the basis of need, not creed, race or nationality. CRS maintains strict standards of efficiency and accountability with 92% of all support going directly to programs to help the poor.

Pontifical Mission Societies

According to the teaching of Vatican Council II, the Pontifical Mission Societies are institutions of the Universal Church and of each local church. Therefore, unlike any other mission organization, the Pontifical Mission Societies are both Pontifical and Episcopal in nature. And, as such, the Pontifical Mission Societies are recognized as the principal instrument for educating the faithful to an awareness of the Church’s universal mission and for encouraging their support, in prayer and sacrifice, for the evangelizing mission of the Church among two-thirds of the human family.

JustFaith Ministries

JustFaith Ministries aspires to enable people of faith to develop a passion for justice, to express this passion in concrete acts of social ministry, and to expand the work of social ministry in their faith communities. JustFaith Ministries creates and supports faith formation processes and resources that emphasize the Gospel message of peace and justice, Church social teaching and the intersection of spirituality and action.

Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development

We also work closely with the Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development, the national public policy agency of the U.S. Catholic Bishops which has great resources for parishes wishing to implement Catholic social teaching.
