“In our Catholic parishes, schools, charities, hospitals and other ministries, the poor, the underemployed, and the unemployed are not issues, but people with names and faces. It is an essential part of our work as Catholics to build a more just society and economy...The Church serves and stands in solidarity with those who are poor and jobless…” -Archbishop Timothy Dolan, September 15th, 2011, Letter to Bishop on Economic Situation
