On the weekend of August 10 - 11, the Archdiocese of Washington will take up the Catholic Communications and Human Development second collection. This collection is vital to the outreach efforts of the Church and to sharing the Good News in the larger community, providing funds for both the Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD).
The CCC supports the Church’s many and varied communications efforts, while the CCHD supports community nonprofit groups, both locally and in other parts of the country, working to help the poor and vulnerable through direct assistance or advocacy. CCC funds are split between each participating diocese and the national office. Dioceses use their share of the collection to support local communications efforts such as televised Masses and diocesan newspapers. On the national level, CCC funds support the development and production of a wide range of media initiatives that are carried out by USCCB staff and grantee organizations.
Please give as generously as you are able.
