USCCB awards $1M to Church in Africa
July 15, 2013
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee on the Church in Africa has awarded $1.05 million in grants to 39 projects. The grants were funded by a special collection taken up in many US dioceses. “We owe a debt of gratitude to the Church in Africa for many vocations," said Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 83, who chairs the subcommittee. “But these vocations will not continue to grow without the support of religious education programs and opportunities for the youth. Our support is strongly needed in areas of high poverty and crime.”
