Be A Witness of Charity

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 charita
ble 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. The collection will be taken up in all parishes of the Diocese of St. Augustine the weekend of June 28-29. If you are unable to attend your parish this weekend, you can send a check to the address below.
