Letter from Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. (Rev. 3:20)

Dear Friends in Christ,

Christ knocks on the door of our hearts and asks us to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters who suffer around the world. One way that we can answer this call is through The Catholic Relief Services Collection (CRSC).

Your contributions to the CRSC support six Catholic agencies that uphold the dignity of human life around the world. These organizations provide humanitarian aid, advocate for the marginalized, and provide services and pastoral care to vulnerable communities.

Your support is needed to continue this important work. The collection will take place in most parishes the weekend of March 10-11, 2018. Please use the collection envelopes at your parish to make your contribution. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of National Collections at 202-541-3346 or at ncpromo@usccb.org.

Thank you for your support of this outreach and for helping Jesus in disguise.

Sincerely in the Lord,

Most Reverend Thomas J. Rodi
Archbishop of Mobile
Chairman, USCCB Committee on National Collections
