The CRS Collection will be taken up in the parishes of our diocese the weekend of March 10-11, 2018. The funds collected support Catholic Church organizations that carry out international relief and solidarity efforts including relief and resettlement for victims of persecution, war, and natural disasters; development projects to improve living conditions for the poor; legal and support services for poor immigrants; peace and reconciliation work for people suffering from violence; and advocacy on behalf of the powerless.
