Ralph McCloud: Becoming Social Poets, Answering Pope Francis’ Call
Ralph McCloud, the Director of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, will speak on "Becoming Social Poets, Answering Pope Francis’ Call" in a presentation co-sponsored by CBU and the St. Martin de Porres National Shrine & Institute.
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) is the domestic anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic Bishops. CCHD works to break the cycle of poverty by helping low-income people participate in decisions that affect their lives, families and communities. It has a complementary mission of educating on poverty and its causes. This dual pastoral strategy of education for justice and helping people who are poor speak and act for themselves reflects the mandate of the Scriptures and the principles of Catholic social teaching. Mr. McCloud has served as the national director for 13 years.
