ARCHDIOCESE OF PHILADELPHIA HELPS AFFECTED BY WELFARE REFORMS

          DENVER, 10 (NE) In view of the difficult situation of more than 30 thousand welfare recipients in the state of Pennsylvania in risk of losing assistance, Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, Archbishop of Philadelphia, has made a calling to "share the responsibility of helping our brothers and sisters". Welfare recipients could lose assistance because of new welfare-to-work rules.

          The Cardinal urged leaders and businessmen of the community to "open their doors to those who once received social assistance, many of which are well trained and prepared for work". "Working together as a community we can create possibilities for many people", he pointed out.

          The archdiocese of Philadelphia has put into action different programs of preparation and training of people so that they may be employed. Also, through the archdiocesan Catholic Social Services, it is seeking to protect from the effects of welfare reforms those who can not apply to a job.
