Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, public Masses were suspended across the country at the time of the 2020 Catholic Home Missions Appeal. Unfortunately, this significantly impacted the Appeal, resulting in
a decrease of more than 63 percent in funds collected from the prior year.

However, as the pandemic continues across the world, the Catholic Home Missions Appeal has remained faithful in providing vital assistance to 87 dioceses and eparchies across the United States, its territories, and several former territories in the Pacific. Without these funds, these dioceses and eparchies would not be able to minister to their parishioners in all the ways that are needed.

Please prayerfully consider contributing to this year’s Catholic Home Missions Appeal in your parish on April 24-25. Amid so many great needs, we are especially grateful for your support.

If you are unable to participate in the collection at your parish but wish to support it, you can by mailing your contribution to: Catholic Home Missions, Office of National Collections, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, P. O. Box 96278, Washington DC 20090-6278. Make your check or money order payable to
“Catholic Home Missions Appeal.”
