Reform CCHD Now partners have released two new devastating reports on the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, its management in the USCCB, and its grantees.
The Goal of the Reform CCHD Now Coalition
Our goal has been and continues to be to serve the Church by bringing much-needed, even if inconvenient, truth to the conversation about the CCHD. We have never aimed to embarrass any of our faithful bishops, nor have we tried to shut the CCHD down. We have heard several stories of good work done by CCHD grantees, and we've been contacted by CCHD representatives who support the call for reform, and have even begun to initiate such reforms at the diocesan level. This is all wonderful news.
We remain ready to fully support the CCHD the moment its national leadership implements real reforms, which include revisiting its charter and ensuring that all of its grantees conform with all Catholic teaching, and not an isolated and confused understanding of Catholic Social teaching; publishing on its web sites signed statements from each grantee which guarantee that the grantee will IN NO WAY work against Church teaching; and when the grant discovery process is made fully transparent and published on the CCHD web site. Initiating such reforms, and publicizing them as a good faith effort to gain renewed trust from those who are rightly skeptical of the CCHD, will indeed be a cause for celebration.
