BURLINGTON - The Most Rev. Salvatore R. Matano, Ninth Bishop of Burlington, is calling upon the generosity of all Vermont Catholics to support this year's Catholic Campaign for Human Development. CCHD, as it is known, relies mainly on its annual collection at all parishes throughout the United States to fund the fight against poverty and to promote self sufficiency.
The CCHD Collection also directly benefits our Vermont communities. 25 percent of all parish collections remain in the diocese to support local anti-poverty efforts.
The CCHD Collection will be taken up at all Vermont parishes the weekend of Nov. 22-23.
