The Peter’s Pence collection takes place every year on the Sunday closest to June 29th, the Feast of the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul. The funds collected go to support the global charitable initiatives of the Holy Father. If you go to the Vatican News website,, you will see all the work that Pope Francis is doing on behalf of the poor and marginalized in the worldwide church. In 2015, Pope Francis visited a pediatric hospital in Bangui in the Central African Republic. He brought a donation of medicine, but left with a promise that he would not forget the country’s children. In 2017, he kept his promise by renovating the hospital and founding a new facility specifically to treat children suffering from malnourishment. This “concrete sign of mercy” was accomplished with contributions from the Peter’s Pence collection.
The Peter’s Pence collection will occur the weekend of June 26-27. Envelopes can be found in your monthly packet, and will be available at the check-in desk at all Masses. Thank you for your support for the works of the Pope on behalf of those most in need.
