A Missionary Priest just visited my parish. During his homily, he asked for help for his diocese. Does the money I offer during this special collection get sent to the Pontifical Mission Societies?
Posted On Monday, November 14, 2016 at 09:30Quite often priests and Religious men and women visit Canada to seek prayer and financial support of the world for their dioceses or Religious Communities in the Missions. The money collected in your parish in response to such an appeal is given directly to the missionary for use in his/her Religious Congregation. This help would be in addition to any help offered by the Pontifical Mission Societies themselves.
