Important Collection Updates

With Masses being suspended in our Diocese due to COVID-19, following are some important collection updates:

  • The Home Mission Collection has been postponed.  When a new date has been selected you will receive an update.
  • The Missionary Cooperation Appeals are typically scheduled for May 15-September 15.  These appeals are tentatively being rescheduled to July, August and September.
  • The Holy Land Collection will be held Sunday, September 13.
  • The World’s Poor Collection is being rescheduled and we will let you know that date as soon as we know.  In the meantime if parishioners received their Consolidated Collection envelope and would like to make a gift, please mail it to the Catholic Foundation or the parish office.  Parishioners can also give online by selecting CF Operations and adding an additional note for it to be given to the World’s Poor or collection of choice.

If you have questions, please email or call Cindy St. Aubin at 920.272.8192.  Thank you for your prayers and generous support of these collections.
