This weekend, November 21-22, the second collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development will be taken up in the Diocese of Arlington. Some of the funds are distributed at the diocesan level, others at the national level, but local organizations have benefitted from these national grants. Bishop Paul S. Loverde has issued a letter encouraging the faithful to support this collection.
Iglesia Descalza also wants to encourage you to be generous. Why? Because as you can see from the following list of local organizations that have received funds over the years from CCHD, they are groups that have a strong presence in our Hispanic and immigrant communities. Así que cuando les solicitan su contribución en la segunda colecta este weekend, hermanos y hermanas, por favor sean generosos porque estas monedas regresarán a nuestra comunidad en particular. ¿Vale?
