Statements & Resolutions

Catholic Committee of Appalachia is a faith-based network raising a prophetic voice for Appalachia and her people. One way we raise that voice is by publishing statements and resolutions on social and environmental matters that are of concern to our members and the region.  By clearly and unmistakably proclaiming God’s justice, CCA fills the void of speaking truth to power, which is a voice we have often found to be lacking in other arenas within the Catholic Church.
