Second Collection for Church in Latin America/Central and Eastern Europe/World Missions – October 21-22, 2017

To: Pastors, Parish Administrators, Parish Secretaries and Bulletin Editors
From: Christine Heusinger, Associate Director, Office of Stewardship

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) established a combined national collection for World Missions, the Church in Latin America, and the Church in Central and Eastern Europe. This collection supports the Church’s works of social justice, evangelization and education, both domestically and around the globe.

Jesus reminds us that the two greatest commandments are to love God with our whole heart, our whole mind, and our whole soul; and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

This collection offers us an opportunity to help our neighbors in light of the Gospel. In doing so, we act as faithful stewards of the gifts God has given us.

Please see the following bulletin and pulpit announcements. If you have any questions, please call 404-920-7605.
