Bishop Soto to oversee work of CCHD

Catholic World News - November 22, 2010

Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento has been named the new chairman of the Subcommittee on Catholic Campaign for Human Development of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. He replaces Bishop Roger Morin of Biloxi.

“I am grateful for the work of the previous committee that has re-tooled CCHD so that it can be even more effective in its mission,” Bishop Soto said. “I am eager to have CCHD serve as an agent for bringing the pastoral priorities of the USCCB to the neighborhoods and towns where Catholic people strive to practice their faith, especially those who are poor and marginalized.”

“My committee will continue to monitor the progress for the implementations of the new guidelines,” he added, referring to the recent “Review and Renewal” of the controversial anti-poverty program.

    How is it that bishops have so much time on their hands that they can chair [dubiously useful] committees of the [dubiously helpful] USCCB? Do we not hear of the severe shortage of priests? Of the reductions in Masses? Of the reductions in confessions? Of the reductions of all the priestly duties? Are the bishops not also priests? Should they not be closer to the sheep committed to their care?
