Federal funds account for nearly 93% of USCCBs migration/refugee budget (from 2012)
Catholic World News ^ | 8/29/2012

Posted on 07/17/2014 4:40:19 AM PDT by markomalley

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services has published its 2011 annual report.

According to the report, over 92.5% of Migration and Refugee Services’ $72.1 million budget came from federal grants and contracts, while under $25,000 came from private donations.

Nearly 80% of expenses were allotted to diocesan programs and direct assistance to refugees and other clients. In 2011, Migration and Refugee Services resettled 14,285 people--25% of refugees entering the United States.

Between 2006 and 2011, Migration and Refugee Services assisted 2,735 victims of human trafficking before the Department of Health and Human Services’ controversial decision not to renew its grant to the USCCB.

During 2011, Migration and Refugee Services also advocated for the passage of the DREAM Act.

Folks, I understand that this is from 2012, but in light of current events, I thought it provided good background.

(BTW, as a practicing Catholic, I am utterly outraged by this kind of thing).

Just like Mike Huckabee...its easy to be “Christian” with other people’s money.

and the Baptists were outraged by the 50 million dollar Baptist resort for illegals too.

I assume this is all sour fruit of Bush’s “faith based initiative” boondoggle.

Paul’s admonition against being unequally yolked comes to mind.

Sounds like some of our churches are finding it very lucrative to cozy up to the Federal government.

As we saw with the secularation of most of our older Catholic colleges,when you take from the government you become less and less Catholic.

No wonder American bishops are such supporters of more and bigger government.

Same here, cradle-Catholic. I am very upset that the US Bishops are bought-out by the US Government. And since the US church provides significant (most?) funds for the Vatican, the Pope and his advisors have also been sold out to the highest bidder.

Makes one consider becoming an anchorite in the desert to separate one's soul from the rot.

Notice the libs don’t seem to have an itch about “separation of church and state” so long as the cause suits their desires.

I stopped giving $ at mass two yrs ago when the archbishops appeal was advertised with a video, during the homily, no less, was all about giving to Hispanics, and the archbishop asking, and in a strong accent suggesting he doesn’t speak our language on a regular basis

These people, with power, the bishops, when they immigrate from another country, when they gain citizenship, they are not by law allowed to effect legislation

They are certainly not allowed to promote illegal behavior

The catechism, paragraph 2241, states that promoting illegal immigration is NOT allowed

I go to Mass for communion. Once in awhile I and my family have to endure a sermon or prayer of the faithful from a bonehead position to boneheaded congregation about supporting poor people fleeing something that we are supposed to help out

Never a word about giving to veterans who gave to this country

Only these takers

Not a penny do I give and I remind them of why every once in awhile

I go for communion

“$72.1 million budget came from federal grants and contracts”

Well I guess sense the Catholic Church is in bed with the
liberal/fascist and the homos, we can expect to see a
new state religion emerge from it’s ashes. They have chosen
the side they want to be on, fascism.

Oh great, thanks to you the Church was forced to go to
Satan himself for the dough. /S.

It’s a shame the Church willingly made a deal with the devil.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, as
a principal, holds money over God, religion and country.
Catholics and Republicans, turn of the century sell outs
that helped fascism to world power.
