Diocese’s Collection for the Catholic Church in the United States posts strong response
the Inland Register
(From the Aug. 19, 2004 edition of the Inland Register)
The Collection for the Catholic Church in the United States, taken up in May, supports six areas of special ministry of the Catholic Church in the United States: Black and Native American Missions, Catholic Campaign for Human Development, Catholic Communications, Catholic Home Missions, Catholic University of America, and the Retirement Fund for Religious.
Information about this collection was mailed to every Catholic household during May.
Since then the diocesan Development Office has received contributions of $118,188 from 2,101 donors.
Contributions are still being accepted for the collection. Send gifts to: Development Office, Diocese of Spokane, PO Box 1453, Spokane, WA 99210-1453.
Gifts to the collection help support these six vital ministries of national Church.
