Bp. Callahan of La Crosse elected to Catholic Relief Services board
On November 11, the following bishops were elected to the board of Catholic Relief Services (CRS): Bishop William P. Callahan, OFM Conv., of La Crosse, Wisconsin, Bishop Frank Dewane of Venice, Florida, and Bishop Cirilo B. Flores of San Diego.http://www.usccb.org/news/2013/13-204.cfm
With the controversies surrounding CRS, I think you could say that Bp. Callahan is CRS "friendly," so it doesn't look like the USCCB is looking at shaking anything up.
I used to be a monthly supporter of CRS. When I first began supporting them, I actually emailed and got a response to which I asked if any moneys are spent on contraceptive programs. Unfortunately I lost the email but the response was a confirmation that no money was spent that way. Honestly, I keep trying to talk myself into going back but I just simply cant without betraying my conscience.
I'm curious, do any of you contribute to another charity or missionaries where you feel your money is used appropriately?
