Portland Archdiocese and Sisters of the Road

NOVEMBER 15, 2008 (Portland, Ore)  The Portland Archdiocese’s CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN for HUMAN DEVELOPMENT (CCHD) held the annual TOBIN LECTURE at ALL SAINTS CHURCH.  The National Director of CCHD, Ralph McCloud, gave the keynote speech on poverty, ‘Hear the Cry of the Poor: Standing in Solidarity with the Poor in Our Community.’

THE UNBORN

Director McCloud said to listen to the voice of the unborn in his lecture.  He mentioned the unborn two or three times.

ELIMINATE POVERTY

Director McCloud says we are called to eliminate poverty. Sounds like Utopian Communism.

BREAKOUT SESSIONS
