Fr. Daniel Kelly of St. Joseph Catholic Church and North Texas IAF
-- in partnership with the Texas Catholic Conference -- hosted a press conference at his church announcing a coordinated interfaith effort to place limits on payday and title loan lending. Says Kelly, "every week another member of my parish tells me a horror story about one of these loans. They debilitate our families."
Congregational members and allies were joined by the Catholic Bishops of Texas in the public call for tougher regulations.
