2014 Peter's Pence Collection: Be a Witness of Charity

WASHINGTON--The Peter's Pence Collection will be taken up in most U.S. dioceses on the weekend of June 28-29. This collection offers Catholics the opportunity to reach out to the poor and suffering by joining Pope Francis in his charitable works throughout the world.

The collection's 2014 theme is "Be a Witness of Charity" and focuses on the need to show Christ's love to others. This worldwide collection supports needs of the Church and humanitarian activities by caring for victims of war, oppression, religious persecution and natural disasters. Donations to the collection will also assist seminaries and institutes of Christian formation in developing countries.

"The Peter's Pence Collection is a way for individual Catholics to help Pope Francis as he reaches out to our suffering brothers and sisters around the world," said Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr of Cincinnati, chairman of the Committee on National Collections of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). "The collection offers us a unique way to witness our faith, by joining our charity with the person who is the visible representative of Christ in the world."

Pope Francis has urged people to go out and encounter others. "The Good News is no mere matter of words, but a testimony to unconditional and faithful love," he said during his Urbi et Orbi message on Easter. "[I]t is about leaving ourselves behind and encountering others, being close to those crushed by life's troubles, sharing with the needy, standing at the side of the sick, elderly and the outcast."
