Second Collection Next Weekend

The Catholic Home Missions Appeal will take place next week. One way that this appeal works to strengthen home mission dioceses in the United States is by funding seminarian formation in poor dioceses. The blessing of seminarians places a financial burden on these dioceses, where educating each seminarian can cost $35,000-40,000 per year. Your support is needed for these young men so they might go back and serve their parishes. Please strengthen the Church at home by making a generous gift to next week’s appeal.
