Archbishop Coakley shares his story of faithPodcast
by Archbishop Paul Coakley
Archbishop Paul Coakley was raised in a Catholic family. But when he went to college, his life soon went adrift. Last month our Archbishop spoke at a conference in Minnesota, where he told the very personal and compelling story of how the Lord gradually led him into a relationship with himself.

Catholic Relief Services values partnerships

Archbishop Paul S. Coakley

Each time I have had the privilege of travelling as board chairman with Catholic Relief Services to one of the 93 countries where CRS serves, I have gained a deeper appreciation of the work CRS undertakes on behalf of Catholics in the United States.

Last week (Jan. 13-16), I was part of a small delegation to Haiti that included Dr. Carolyn Woo, CRS president and CEO, and Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). While there, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of our CRS presence in Haiti and marked the fifth anniversary of the devastating 2010 earthquake that left so much destruction in this already impoverished country.

My takeaway from this trip has been a deeper appreciation of one of the distinctive ways in which CRS operates around the globe. Catholic Relief Services places great value on the quality and importance of its partnerships. It is through CRS partnerships with the local Church, other Church organizations, relief and development agencies and governments that CRS is able to have its greatest impact in enhancing human dignity, responding to natural disasters, promoting peace and justice, and building sustainable mechanisms for greater food security, healthcare and economic opportunities for families and communities.

Catholic Relief Services valora asociaciones

Arzobispo Pablo S. Coakley

(Nota del Traductor: Catholic Relief Services, CRS por sus siglas en inglés, es la agencia oficial de la Comunidad Católica de EE.UU para ayuda humanitaria internacional.)

Cada vez que he tenido el privilegio de viajar como presidente de la junta de directores de Catholic Relief Services a uno de los 93 países en los que CRS sirve, ha crecido mi apreciación por la obra que CRS desarrolla en nombre de los católicos en los Estados Unidos.

La semana pasada (enero 13-16), formé parte de una pequeña delegación a Haití, que incluyó la Doctora Carolyn Woo, Presidenta Ejecutiva de CRS, y el Arzobispo Joseph Kurtz, Presidente de la Conferencia Estadounidense de Obispos Católicos (USCCB). Una vez allí, se ha celebrado el 60 aniversario de la presencia de CRS en Haití y marcó el quinto aniversario del devastador terremoto de 2010 que dejó tanta destrucción en este país ya empobrecido.
