Your attention is called to the Collection to Aid the Catholic Church in Central and Eastern Europe to be taken up on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13. Because of the continued need of the Catholic Church in Central and Eastern Europe, the bishops of the United States asked us to again extend the opportunity for the people of the United States to aid them.
The theme for the 2013 collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe is “Restoring the Church, Building the Future.” The collection supports evangelization through Catholic education and intellectual life, seminary formation and development of new leaders in those areas formerly under Soviet control. The Church in this region continues to have great needs for its essential pastoral work. Your donations invest in future generations of Catholics.
Through this collection and with a love that brings radiant light, Catholics in the United States provide assistance which is vital to the growth and strength of the Catholic Church in Central and Eastern Europe.
Please give your support to the Collection to Aid the Catholic Church in Central and Eastern Europe and share the hope and freedom that we have been privileged to enjoy in this country. Thank you on behalf of the many hopeful individuals and struggling communities in Central and Eastern Europe who benefit from your efforts and assistance.
