Pope's Pastoral Works

Whenever a natural disaster occurs somewhere in the world, other countries rush to provide assistance in the form of food, water, medical supplies, blankets, money and trained personnel. The Holy Father also participates in giving financial assistance to people in need. The proceeds from the annual collection for the Pope’s Pastoral Works are used to help finance these relief efforts. Please be as generous as you can when this collection is taken up in your parish as we never know when or where such a need will arise.
