Catholic Advocate Calls on Bishops To Launch National Collection for Life
Catholic Advocate has called upon the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to launch a National Collection for Life to be held in January the weekend before the annual March for Life. Read the press release
Catholic Advocate recommends proceeds from the collection be used to support the programs of the USCCB Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities. While awaiting the weekend of January 22/23, 2011 to arrive, Catholic Advocate has begun exploring ways to raise money for the collection in the coming months and will then present those funds to the USCCB.
Catholic Advocate made the request in writing to Cardinal Daniel DiNardo (Galveston-Houston), Chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities and Bishop Kevin Farrell (Dallas), Chairman of the Committee on National Collections. Read the full letter here.
