Moreover, Lennon has definitively ordered Catholic Charities to turn the money down, a spokesman said.

The reason for the order is that Voice of the Faithful, by raising money for charitable work independent of the archdiocese, is driving a wedge between the bishop and the faithful, said the Rev. Christopher Coyne, a spokesman for Lennon.
