Peter’s Pence Collection: July 1
The annual Peter’s Pence Collection for Pope Francis takes place on the weekend of June 30 and July 1. Funds received for this collection enable the Holy Father to carry out his charitable works around the world. For example, in Nyamirambo, Rwanda, the Salesian Sisters of the Sacred Hearts used contributions from Peter’s Pence to expand their building enabling them to increase education for poor, hearing-impaired children. Parishes who requested resources and materials should have received them from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. For questions, contact Nicole Germain at 202-541-3346, or email@example.com. Please do what you can to support our brothers and sisters through Peter’s Pence and charitable works of the Holy Father that weekend.
