Next weekend, May 9 and 10, we will have a concrete opportunity to show compassionate love to those most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic through our annual Mothers’ Day collection for Catholic Charities. This wonderful organization, which is the principal human service agency of the Church in our diocese, is experiencing a drastic increase in requests for assistance due to the coronavirus pandemic and its economic consequences. The money received in this collection will be used to help those who are in need right here in our own diocese….Catholic Charities strives to serve the welfare of our brothers and sisters who are most in need during this difficult time. You can make a donation online to this special collection for Catholic Charities at www.diocesefwsb.ore/diocesan-donations, mail your contribution to your parish or use the parish on-line giving.
May Mary, Our Mother of Mercy, intercede for you!”
~ Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend
