Please find below a letter entitled "Response to the Economic Crisis" from Fr. J. Bryan Hehir and Fr. Richard Erikson to the Pastors and Principals of the Archdiocese of Boston regarding pastoral responses to the economic crisis. This information was gathered from Pastors and Principals in the Archdiocese who responded to a request to share their best practices in order that other parishes and schools may benefit from this exchange of information. In addition, Catholic Charities and the Planning Office for Urban Affairs has provided some great resource information and materials towards this same end.
