The collection for Church Missions within the United States (also known as the Catholic Home Missions Appeal) will take place next week.
One way that this appeal works to support home mission dioceses in the United States is by supporting seminarian formation in poor dioceses. The blessing of seminarians places a financial burden on these dioceses, because educating each seminarian costs $35-40K per year. Your support is needed for these young men so that they might go back and serve their parishes.
Please strengthen the Church at home by making a generous gift to nextweek’s appeal.
