Catholics throughout the Diocese of Orlando will have the opportunity to support Pope Francis in his charitable works throughout the world by contributing to the Peter’s Pence special collection June 20-21.

Emphasizing the role of Catholics in allowing Christ’s love to reach others, this worldwide collection unites us in solidarity with the Holy Father and his works of charity to those in need: victims of war, oppression, religious persecution, natural disasters and other human promotion projects around the world. It also assists seminaries and institutes of Christian formation in developing countries.

Embarking on the third year of his pontificate, Pope Francis continues to call each of us to be a witness of charity.  “There is much that we can do to benefit the poor, the needy and those who suffer, and to favor justice, promote reconciliation and build peace,” he said.

Join our Holy Father as a witness of charity to those who are suffering. Please give generously to the collection.
