Second Collections

By Fr. Rothell Price

 

Archdiocese for Military Services

Collection Dates: November 9th & 10th 

Announcement Dates: October 27th & November 3rd 

 

The National Collection for the Archdiocese for the Military Services (AMS) is taken up in Catholic parishes throughout the United States once every three years since it was established in 2013.  The proceeds from this national collection will support pastoral care and ministry to Catholic families stationed all around the world, as well as to Catholic patients in the Department of Veterans Affairs

Medical Centers throughout the United States, Guam and Puerto Rico. Since the Archdiocese for the Military Services receives no funding from the U.S. Government or the U.S. Military, the AMS is entirely dependent on private giving from Catholics such as you and me.

Archbishop Timothy Broglio, the Ordinary of the AMS, wrote: “Increasing the Catholic community’s awareness about the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, and its sole responsibility for the spiritual care of approximately 1.8 million Catholic men, women and children who hail from all 50 states and U.S. territories – including those from your own parish – is of critical importance.”  Please participate willingly and generously in the National Collection for the Archdiocese for the Military Services.

We American Catholics have a unique opportunity to support Catholic ministry in the U.S. military and to all who seek treatment at VA Medical Centers.  Through your participation in the National Collection for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, active duty and retired veterans from East Texas, Southern Arkansas, North and Central Louisiana, and West Mississippi are spiritually cared for.

Please help the AMS meet an assortment of pressing financial challenges. Above all, make it possible for them to bring the presence of Jesus Christ and His Church to our active and retired military families.  Give generously to the National Collection for the Archdiocese for the Military Services.
