Within the universal Catholic Church, the Clergy and Diocese Relations Department of Cross Catholic Outreach oversees the relationship with the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development and the Office of Papal Charities. It is through these relationships that Cross Catholic Outreach develops a stronger relationship between the Church in the Industrialized World and the suffering Church in the Developing World and is better able to bring the two together in mutual assistance. By facilitating such a rapport, Clergy and Diocese Relations enables Cross Catholic Outreach to be a significant part of the missionary work of the Catholic Church in the World today. Many countries remain difficult for most ministries to assist. Through our relationship with the the Vatican, Cross Catholic Outreach is able to help the collaborate with the universal Church in these places by channeling our aid through the Catholic Bishops in the developing world.
