Around the World and Here at Home, The Catholic Relief Services Collection Reveals Christ’s Love to Those in Need

On Sunday, March 10, 2024 many dioceses in the United States will observe the traditional Lenten practice of almsgiving by participating in The Catholic Relief Services Collection. Funds from this collection support the work of Catholic organizations that aid victims of war and natural disasters, help build peace in places of conflict, and minister to migrants and others with specific pastoral needs.

By participating in this year’s collection, you help the Church reveal Christ’s love to people in need around the world and here in the United States. You can give at Mass or through your parish’s online/e-giving platform. #iGiveCatholicTogether also accepts funds for the collection.
