U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops

WASHINGTON – The 2015 Annual Peter’s Pence Collection will be taken up in many dioceses the weekend of June 27-28. Through this collection, Catholics have an opportunity to support the humanitarian and charitable works of Pope Francis that reach out to the marginalized and poor.

The theme for the collection is “Be a Witness of Charity,” emphasizing the need to show the mercy of God to others. Donations to this annual worldwide collection help the pope support victims of war and religious persecution, natural disasters, and those suffering around the world.

“Through the Peter’s Pence Collection individuals can join with Pope Francis in providing much needed care and relief to those who find themselves suffering or on the margins.” said Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr of Cincinnati, chairman of the Committee on National Collections of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. “This collection is a way to be a witness to the love of Christ in unity with Catholics all around the world.”
