‘Peter’s Pence Collection helps war, disaster victims

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

May God bless you! This weekend, parishes in our Archdiocese will take up the annual Peter’s Pence collection. Our participation in the Peter’s Pence Collection gives us an opportunity be a witness of charity to our brothers and sisters around the world. Gifts to this collection help the Holy Father support victims of war, natural disasters, and others most in need of assistance.

On Easter Sunday 2013, Pope Francis encouraged each person to be a witness of charity. He said, “Let us be renewed by God’s mercy … and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation, and make justice and peace flourish.” Pope Francis has continued to remind us through his actions that we must serve our brothers and sisters in order to be true disciples of Christ.

Join the Holy Father and be a witness of charity throughout the world. You can participate through your donations, prayers, and outreach to spread the message of need. Please be generous in the Peter’s Pence Collection.

For more information about the work supported by the Peter’s Pence collection, go to www.usccb.org and put in the search box: “Peter’s Pence Collection Resources.”

Sincerely yours in Our Lord,

Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D.
Archbishop of Louisville
