What better time to demonstrate the power of Christ to liberate communities everywhere from sin, desperation and impoverishment? On this Feast of Christ the King, you can participate in His work of building a Kingdom of love, solidarity, communion, peace and beauty by supporting the CCHD mission to protect life and dignity by helping people who are poor speak and act for themselves.
When you make a donation to CCHD, you are supporting the passion, talent and imagination present in our communities and parishes. You empower others with the chance to participate in society with confidence, and to effect real change to improve their lives.
Archbishop Blair offers this encouragement to give generously to the CCHD Collection:
Through CCHD the Catholic Church fulfills an important social mission. Your support is essential to help the more than 46 million people in our country who struggle to overcome poverty.

CCHD also invites young people in grades 7-12 to participate in the CCHD MULTIMEDIA CONTEST, a creative justice education project. The contest encourages students to create a multimedia project in any medium - for example, video, PowerPoint, short story, painting, song, or photography - that illustrates the theme, "Do Justice, Love Goodness, Walk Humbly with God" (Micah 6:8). Prizes will be awarded both within the Archdiocese of Hartford and nationally. For more information, contact Sarah Hillier, or call (203) 777-7279.
