Tuesday, April 10 2018

devp-logo-en-50eThe Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) at various times receives inquiries and questions about some of the partners involved with the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (CCODP) which assist it in its projects for the Global South. The CCCB wishes to confirm that a joint research project is currently underway involving representation from the CCCB and CCODP. This is a work in progress, for which preliminary findings have been shared with the Bishops of Canada and with CCODP.

The Conference of Bishops, while having expressed concern to CCODP regarding these preliminary results, remains hopeful that any necessary clarifications will be determined shortly. Both CCCB and CCODP are committed to this process and mutually desire a constructive outcome which is life-giving for the Church and its work for integral and sustainable human development.
