Catholic Relief Services Collection
The Catholic Relief Services Collection supports six Catholic agencies that serve vulnerable and marginalized people at home. These ministries include relief and resettlement services to victims of persecution, war, and natural disasters; sustainable development programs to improve the living conditions of the poor; advocacy on behalf of the powerless; peace and reconciliation work for people suffering from violence; and legal and support services for poor immigrants.
Among agencies supported by this collection is CRS or Catholic Relief Services, the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. CRS and its Caritas partners are on the ground in Ukraine and in bordering countries, providing safe shelter, hot meals, hygiene supplies, transport to safe areas, counseling support and more. Learn about its work in Ukraine here.
Parishioners of the Diocese of Fall River join their brothers and sisters from across the country in supporting this Catholic Relief Services national collection this weekend. Learn more about the collection at www.usccb.org/catholic-relief.
