Archbishop Aymond was voted onto the board on March 18, joining six other U.S. Catholic bishops in providing episcopal oversight to the ministry.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Archbishop Aymond to our board of directors,” said Jim Cavnar, President of Cross Catholic Outreach. “His guidance and leadership will be a wonderful blessing for our ministry as we continue to promote integral human development and community transformation around the world to improve the lives of the poorest of the poor.”
Archbishop Aymond is currently the 14th archbishop of New Orleans. He holds the unique distinction of being the first New Orleans native to serve as archbishop of New Orleans in the 216-year history of the local Church. He also served as bishop of Austin from 2000 to 2009.
