Poverty Awareness Month

 For Catholics, January is Poverty Awareness Month. It is a time when the U.S. Bishops, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, and the Catholic community in the United States take up Pope Francis' challenge to live in solidarity with the poor.


This year, Catholics are called to respond to issues such as the dignity and rights of workers,  human trafficking, and the adverse effects of climate change on poor communities. 


Among the many resources that are available are a daily calendar and longer daily reflections.
