Our mission is to help people know, love and serve God locally and globally.
The Catholic Home Missions collection is a U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops appeal that provides resources to strengthen the Church in the U.S. by providing funds to enhance pastoral ministry through catechesis, seminarian and lay training and education and more in mission dioceses that lack the basic resources to provide spiritual care in their communities. Dioceses that have received funding from this appeal comprise over 45% of all U.S. dioceses!
Examples in the U.S of dioceses that have received funds include Birmingham, Alabama where the Catholic population is less than 3%. Closer to home, the Diocese of Crookston, MN has received support to help with educating seven seminarians who will serve in the Crookston diocese.
The collection for this appeal is taken in parishes just after Easter.
