Catholic Campaign for Human Development Collection 

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty by funding community programs that encourage independence. You are essential to its success. Your generous donations the weekend of Nov. 20-21 will give those in poverty the support they need to make lasting changes. Learn more at catholicnh.org/cchd.

Black and Indian Mission Collection

Founded by the Catholic bishops of the United States, the Black and Indian Mission Office consists of three organizations which seek to “insist on that same respect” for African American, Native American, and Alaska Natives through advocacy on the national scene. Each organization cooperates with local diocesan communities to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and respond to real and pressing needs on the ground. Your financial support the weekend of Nov. 20-21 helps form children in the faith, educate young people, and build hope – a hope often so hard to find in the areas that missionaries serve. Learn more at blackandindianmission.org.

Diocesan Archives Seek Contributions

The Diocesan Archives wants your help! We have thousands of documents and photos pertaining to the history of the Diocese of Manchester - concerning our Bishops, Priests, Parishes, Schools, and people. We have documents going back to the nineteenth century; however, the concern today is that we are not always capturing current information that will be historical data in 10, 20, or 100 years from now.

If your parish, priest, or organization is doing something memorable, please provide the archives with documents or photos of the event. Examples of recent events that have been saved include the installation of new sanctuary furniture at St. Mark the Evangelist Church, as well as the installation of a statue of our Blessed Mother in the Holy Cross Cemetery in memory of members of local Knights of Columbus Councils.

For more information, please contact Dennis Pedley at dpedley@rcbm.org or 663-0190.
