The Bishops of the United States established the national collections to support 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. The national collections offer us an opportunity to help our neighbors in the light of the Gospel. In doing so, we act as faithful stewards of the gifts God has given us.
The October 19-20 second collection is a combination of three second collections: World Missions, the Church in Latin America, and the Church in Central and Eastern Europe.
Following are the bulletin and pulpit announcements.
