Home Missions – Black and Indian Missions Collection
February 4, 2017 - February 5, 2017
Proceeds from this one collection support the important work of two: the Catholic Home Missions Appeal and the the National Black and Indian Missions Collection.
- Launched in 1998, the Catholic Home Missions Appeal strengthens the Church in the U.S. and its territories where resources are thin, communities are scattered, and priests are few. The appeal funds a wide range of pastoral services, including evangelization, religious education, maintenance of mission parishes, the training of seminarians and lay ministers, and more.

- The National Black and Indian Missions Collection, mandated by the III Plenary Council in 1884, continues as the embodiment of the Church’s concern for evangelizing Black, American Indian, Eskimo and Aleut peoples in the U.S. The funds are distributed as grants to dioceses throughout the U.S. Visit: Black and Indian Mission Office
