ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Father Larry Snyder, President of Catholic Charities USA, one of the nation's largest networks of faith-based social service providers, released the following statement about the impending shutdown of the federal government:

"As our federal government faces an impending shutdown for the first time in nearly two decades, we call on our political leaders to consider how their inability to find a way through this crisis will affect those who can least afford it. We ask both parties to consider the devastating impact a stalemate could prove to be for the millions of people living in poverty in communities across the country.

"We call on Congressional leaders to find a way to move forward to keep our government running and to pursue the common good."
