Beirut Explosion Response
The massive explosion that resulted in an immediate need for shelter and other basic needs, especially for vulnerable affected populations including the elderly and refugee and migrant populations. Many health care facilities, already stretched due to the COVID 19 response, were impacted by the explosion.
CRS has initiated support to Caritas Lebanon and our seven PEER partners (a group of local faith based partners), while coordinating closely with other Caritas members and sharing information with donors, including USAID/BHA. Our Charitable Giving team has set up a donate page at Catholic Relief Services (CRS) in an effort to raise funds for the response. The Diocese of St. Augustine has contributed $5,000 to the relief effort.
Thank you for always keeping in your prayers those we serve, the families affected by this horrible disaster, the vulnerable around the world, the hungry, the displaced, the poor and those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and lastly, thank you for your prayers for our CRS staff and their families serving around the world.

A Pastoral letter on the Sin of Racism from the USCCB
U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, USCCB, Archbishop José H. Gomez, racism, Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism.
"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern."
- Pope Francis, 9/16/13
The Catholic bishops of the United States are pleased to offer once again to the Catholic faithful Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship (en Español), our teaching document on the political responsibility of Catholics. This statement represents our guidance for Catholics in the exercise of their rights and duties as participants in our democracy. We urge our pastors, lay and religious faithful, and all people of good will to use this statement to help form their consciences; to teach those entrusted to their care; to contribute to civil and respectful public dialogue; and to shape political choices in the coming election in light of Catholic teaching. The statement lifts up our dual heritage as both faithful Catholics and American citizens with rights and duties as participants in the civil order.
Read Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship: A Call to Political Responsibility from the Catholic Bishops of the United States (en Español), which provides a framework for Catholics in the United States.
Take the pledge below as an individual, family, or community. Anyone and everyone can commit together to honoring human dignity through civil conversation.
