2016 Central and Eastern Europe Collection
Sunday, March 6
For many in the Church in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as parts of Asia, the aftermath of 70 years of Soviet rule is still felt in the form of poverty, infrequent pastoral care, and lack of buildings where the faithful can worship and cultivate their faith. Your support is needed to strengthen the Church in this region through grants that fund projects that promote ministries for children and families, create affordable housing, and provide a cultural and spiritual education. Please be generous in your parish collection. Your gift will continue to restore the Church and build the future in Central and Eastern Europe.
