The Combined Collections: Church in Mission appeal is the weekend of Oct. 8-9. (This is a change from an earlier posting.) Combined Collections offers us a wonderful opportunity to help people in need through five important efforts.
Please give prayerful consideration to this one appeal that supports five important ministries of our national Church family:
- Catholic Relief Services – carries out the commitment of the Bishops of the U.S. to assist the poor and vulnerable overseas.
- Catholic Home Missions – support for those in Appalachia and the Deep South, the Southwest, the Mountain West, the Caribbean and the Pacific.
- Works of the Holy Father: Peter’s Pence – assists Pope Francis in maintaining the administration of 700 million Catholics and special needs in Third World countries.
- World Mission Sunday – supporting and sending missionaries and seeking world peace and justice.
- The Church in Central and Eastern Europe – funds the restoration and renewal of the Church in Europe.
