The Collection for Catholic Relief Services (CRS), to be taken up February 20-21 in our Diocese, works at home and abroad to give aid to struggling, poor, and underrepresented families. The six worldwide organizations supported by the collection provide humanitarian aid, pastoral support, and disaster relief to our suffering brothers and sisters around the globe. This collection offers an opportunity for each of us to help Jesus in disguise.

This collection is taken up once every three years, part of a twice-yearly cycle of six national collections supported by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. A donation is given from the Annual Catholic Appeal each of the other two years. Many parishes also collect funds for CRS using Operation Rice Bowl each year.

“Please give generously to The Catholic Relief Services Collection,” said Bishop Joseph Tyson. “Your support truly makes a difference.”

This collection is optional. If a collection is not taken up in your parish, make your check or money order payable to: "Catholic Relief Services Collection" and send directly to:
