CATHOLIC CHARITIES COLLECTION SECOND COLLECTION NEXT WEEKEND

Since 1940, Catholic Charities has helped our neighbors throughout Central Pennsylvania regardless of faith or background. Last year, 15 counselors helped 5,612 families with emergency needs such as heat, rent, shelter, doctor visits, and funerals. While the average request was a seemingly modest $246, Catholic Charities had enough funds to help only 20% of those who sought assistance. Because the Annual Catholic Appeal helps cover the cost of operating expenses, 100% of contributions received through this collection will directly help neighbors in need. Please return your specially marked envelope (from your monthly envelope packet) in the second collection during Masses next weekend. May you feel moved to bless others in your own abundance. Thank you.
