Thank you for supporting CCHT in its inaugural participation in #iGiveCatholic on #Giving Tuesday, November 29th!
As many of you know, #iGiveCatholic is an online giving event for people across the country (& the world!) to come together to raise as much money as possible for Catholic parishes, schools, & ministries on one day, #GivingTuesday.
Whether you made a donation, shared information with family & friends, encouraged others to give, or prayed for the work of CCHT, we sincerely appreciate your support & generosity!
In our first year of participation, CCHT raised $1,950! THANK YOU & GOD BLESS!
We call on the Governor and Legislature to protect our most vulnerable citizens, who have already borne the brunt of so many previous cuts, from more devastating cuts as we grapple with the Louisiana budget deficit.
Catholic Social Teaching calls us to protect our most vulnerable citizens. In a Louisiana pastoral statement, Confronting with Courageous Hearts (Louisiana Conference of Catholic Bishops, May 1, 1984), the Catholic Bishops teach us that:
The Scriptures in both the Old and the New Testaments, and the teachings of the Catholic Church, call the faithful to confront with courageous hearts the issues of human rights, social justice and peace. The Bishops of Louisiana... tell Catholics that it is their social ministry to insure the dignity of every person, especially the poor, the weak and the oppressed. Such action… must be at the very heart of the Church’s preaching and liturgy, its vision and action….the worldwide Synod of Bishops, meeting in Rome, asserted that action on behalf of justice is a constitutive dimension of preaching of the Gospel (and) of the Church’s mission for the redemption of the human race. Ministering to the needy must be at the very heart of the Church’s preaching and liturgy, its vision and action. Involvement of parishioners, including our youth, in programs that are other-centered and not focused in on self can develop and instill values that will enrich future generations… Our vision of pastoral ministry urges us to invite all people to join us in a collaborative effort to respond to the struggles of people to attain that justice which brings dignity and peace.
In particular, the future of the state of Louisiana depends on how willing we are to care for and prepare our youngest citizens. High quality early care and education will prepare our students for a smart start in life, enable families to be productive in the workforce, and serve as an economic engine for local communities. That is why we support expanding access to high quality early learning across the state of Louisiana by restoring funding for early care and education.
Please email Governor Edwards (gov.louisiana.gov) with this message as he submits a budget to the Legislature in December for next year.
