Parishes throughout the Diocese of Orlando will hold a special collection, July 30-31, for the Church in Latin America and Africa, The Catholic University of America and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development.
The collection gives hope to people in Latin America and Africa, especially young people, who seek to live their faith. Gifts made to this collection will fund evangelization, formation and catechesis projects
The collection also underwrites scholarships to assist financially deserving students in completing their education at Catholic University of America, located in Washington, D.C. Founded in 1887, the university offers students an excellent education in a faith-filled atmosphere that is grounded in the Catholic intellectual tradition
The collection also benefits the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, which seeks to address the root causes of poverty in America through the support of community-led, self-help organizations and transformative education.
