June 16, 2010
The Catholic Campaign for Human Development, the US bishops’ domestic anti-poverty program, has approved $300,000 in grants to help communities affected by the BP oil spill.
“This tragic oil spill has grave human, environmental and economic costs,” said Bishop Roger Morin of Biloxi, chairman of the US bishops’ subcommittee for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development. “Through these grants, the Church also offers concrete support to the work that must be done to help these communities help themselves.”
