Who We Are

 
The purpose of the Peter’s Pence Collection is to provide the Holy Father with the financial means to respond with emergency assistance to those who are suffering as a result of war, oppression, natural disaster, and disease.

This collection was started centuries ago to provide financial support for the Pope and has evolved to fund the Holy See’s charitable actions for those in need. The Peter’s Pence Collection has raised nearly $190 million to support our suffering brothers and sisters around the globe. Thank you for standing in solidarity with the Holy See with your generosity. 

Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in faith who are facing adversity. Check with your diocese or call the USCCB Office of National Collections Promotions department at 202-541-3346. For resources, please click here.
