US prelate visits Cuba

Catholic World News - January 15, 2014

A Chicago auxiliary bishop is visiting two Cuban dioceses to examine pastoral projects that have received funding from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

“It is important that the Church in the United States support the Church in Cuba, especially during this time of changes,” said Bishop John Manz. “The Church in Cuba wants to make sure that as people open businesses they learn about Catholic social teaching and the primacy it gives to the human person in the economy. We also want to support the Church in Cuba as it is recognized in civil society for the insights about the human person that it brings to the table.”

“Of special importance for our Subcommittee [on the Church in Latin America] is our ability to ensure that our financial support to the different dioceses in Cuba is transmitted smoothly and gets to the beneficiaries promptly,” he added. “The people in Cuba need our help and we will continue to support them in whatever way we can as the Catholic Church has always believed that engagement, rather than isolation, is the best way to improve human rights and move forward in our relations with the island nation.”
