Director of CCHD looks for ways to solve issues

Ralph McCloud, the national director of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), met with Father Art Cavitt at Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Parish rectory in Ferguson. McCloud works on behalf of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in fighting poverty by helping low-income people participate in decisions that affect their lives, families and communities.

Ralph McCloud, the director of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' Catholic Campaign for Human Development, had what he called "a whirlwind" visit to St. Louis from Sept. 10 to Sept. 13.

He spoke with Archbishop Robert J. Carlson, St. Charles Lwanga Center executive director Father Art Cavitt and others in a series of meetings to identify the archdiocese's financial needs as it responds to the violence -- what he called "this sad situation in Ferguson" -- in the aftermath of the shooting death of Michael Brown.
