Caritas North America consists of three organisations from the United States and Canada. Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA), Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and Development and Peace (Canada) have many tens of thousands of individual members and provide some of the largest emergency response, development, advocacy and other programmes to the united work of Caritas Internationalis. They work together with the Caritas Latin America and Caribbean region on common initiatives such as migration, peacebuilding and social and economic justice.
Caritas Updates from North America
Lenten message from Cardinal Oscar Andrès Rodríguez Maradiaga SDB, President of Caritas Internationalis.”Each of us can live more simply, consume less, waste less and be more conscious of our choices.”
The Caritas confederation will launch a global “wave of prayer” to promote an end to world hunger on 10th December. It marks the beginning of the Caritas anti-hunger campaign, One Human Family, Food For All.
The wave starts on the island of Samoa and will sweep across the globe involving Caritas organisations and many other people on all continents.
