How Are Catholic Charities And Catholic Relief Services Connected?

A commenter asked me this question today at 12:57pm.  Because he also divulged his email address and because Blogger doesn't let me redact that, I was reluctant to publish "as is" to respect privacy.  But this is a good question.

Catholic Charities is not an arm of the USCCB as are CRS and CCHD.  However, as is the case with many progressive/liberal outfits, they share some common leadership.  Many of these groups share members of boards of directors and these two are no exception.  Here is a list of the Trustees of Catholic Charities.  Note two names: Sister Carol Keehan and Carolyn Woo.  If you've been following the news at all, you'll recognize that Sister Carol has behaved as the proverbial "snake in the grass", most notably with Obamacare.  For more on Carolyn Woo, please see this.

Besides that, Catholic Charities is rife with other scandals; for convenience, click here.  I needn't rehash them here, but clearly they too are utterly unworthy to receive one penny of our hard-earned money.  We'd do far better to give to charities that obey the Magisterium and that actually engage in Works of Mercy.
