The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee on the Church in Latin America has granted over $1.7 million to 127 projects in Latin America and the Caribbean and an additional $727,000 for the reconstruction of churches destroyed by the 2010 Haitian earthquake.
Projects supported include the training of lay catechists in Mexico and support for natural family planning in Brazil.
In 2013, the USCCB granted over $5.5 million to the Church in Latin America and the Caribbean. The previous year, the subcommittee awarded nearly $6.5 million in grants for Latin American pastoral projects and $5.7 million for church reconstruction in Haiti.
