This weekend a second collection will be taken up nationwide in support of the Catholic Home Missions Appeal.
“Home Missions” is the name for dioceses and parishes in the United States, including its territories and former territories, which cannot provide basic pastoral services to Catholics without outside help. Basic pastoral services include Mass and sacraments, religious education, and ministry training for priests, deacons, religious sisters and lay people. Nearly 40% of US Dioceses are considered home missions.
Thank you for your generosity and support!
