Be a Witness of Charity - Peter's Pence Collection This Weekend
June 23, 2017
The annual Peter's Pence Collection will take place in parishes across the Archdiocese this weekend, June 24-25.
Participation in the Peter’s Pence Collection gives us an opportunity be a witness of charity to our brothers and sisters around the world. Gifts to this annual collection help our Holy Father, Pope Francis, to support victims of war and natural disasters and others most in need of assistance.
The Peter’s Pence Collection unites us in solidarity with the Holy Father and his works of charity toward those who are suffering around the world. Pope Francis reminds us that true power lies not in amassing possessions and resources for ourselves but in giving. “We must never forget that true power, at any level, is service, whose bright summit is upon the Cross . . . it means entering the logic of Jesus who kneels to wash the Apostles’ feet,” he said. Your contributions to the Peter’s Pence Collection join with the power of Christ to give support to those in need.
Join Pope Francis and be a witness of charity throughout the world. You can participate through your donations, prayers, and outreach to spread the message of the love of Christ. Please be generous in the Peter’s Pence Collection.
