Some wise words from Bishop Soto from Sacramento:
“Caring for the poor is not just something nice the church does; it’s a part of who we are and essential to the church’s saving work.
The Catholic Church lives out this call every day, assisting millions of people every year through social services including food banks, counseling, shelter, and other efforts of Catholic Charities. The current socio-economic situation also calls for more dynamic responses, working at every level of society to create decent jobs, ensure safe and affordable housing, protect immigrant rights, and much more. Last year, CCHD provided over $7.5 million to 230 organizations across the country to do this.”
