National Director, Catholic Campaign
   for Human Development

OCSJM is pleased to welcome Mr. Ralph McCloud, national Director of CCHD, the U.S. Bishops' anti-poverty program which funds community organizing and economic development projects that address root causes of poverty in the United States. His profound commitment to the Catholic Church enables him to communicate the biblical, theological and spiritual dimensions of Catholic social ministry and the principles that guide CCHD's mission of empowering people trapped in the cycle of poverty. 

         Keynote Topic:  
        Being "a Church that is Poor,
for the Poor"

JOIN US to Recognize Our 2014 Award Winners:

                Most Reverend Joseph F. Donnelly Awards 

 Individual -    
   Reverend James Manship, 
   Pastor, St. Rose of Lima Church, New Haven

  Father Manship's tireless efforts on behalf of his own parishioners  
  and the larger Hispanic community have placed him in the line of fire
  on a number of controversial issues that are of critical local  concern.
  A strong advocate for social justice, Father Manship acts and leads
  in the public square, for the common good, and especially for the
  poor and vulnerable. 


 Organization -  

Sacred Heart Parish Community, Southbury
Rev. Joseph Donnelly, Pastor  
   The faith community of Sacred Heart Parish is motivated by the
   principles of justice and charity, and honors the Catholic vision
   of social justice.
The accomplishments of the parish can be
   seen internally, with the large
number of parish volunteers and
   ministries, as well as externally by the
thousands of people the
                                 parish has helped through its efforts. 


Dr. Charlie Schlegel Cooperative Parish Sharing Award

  St. Rose of Lima Parish, New Haven
Rev. James Manship, Pastor
   We commend the community of St. Rose of Lima for their work to provide 
   an annual summer program for children, addressing the need for summer
   enrichment and incorporating  a teen “immersion” experience. Teens
   from St. Rose and from East Catholic High School in Manchester spend
   the week working together to provide religious education and
   recreational activities for the children each morning. In the afternoon
   and evening they share cross-cultural activities in New Haven, building 
                                 new relationships and developing sensitivities to the challenges and
                                 richness of urban life.

 Please RSVP by Tuesday, October 14, 2014
