If you care about the poor and needy, do not donate money to Bishop Malone's annual Harvest Ball.
Instead, write a check directly to Catholic Charities of Maine.
Catholics can do more for the poor and needy by writing a check directly to Catholic Charities of Maine and not to Bishop Richard Malone.
During these difficult economic times, Catholic Charities is struggling to provide funding for its programs and services.
Meanwhile, Bishop Richard Malone refuses to move out of his expensive to maintain million dollar, 16 room, 7,000 sq. ft. mansion.
Under Bishop Malone's leadership, the diocese has experienced an almost $40 million surplus during the past five years, yet the bishop has not substantially increased the diocese contribution to Catholic Charities of Maine.
Bishop Malone will use your donation to further provide for his personal comfort.
Catholic Charities will use your donation to lessen the discomfort of those who are hungry, without shelter and in need of medical care.
