Next week, we will take up the Collection for the Church in Latin America. Latin American Catholics are often characterized by their warm, humble, and passionate hearts. They have been blessed by a rich culture as well as natural resources. However, in these times of economic struggle, poverty and violence are still major obstacles in their daily lives. Your support helps give hope to people in the region, especially the youth who seek to live faith. It is more important than ever that we support the Church in Latin American and the Caribbean. Please give generously in next week’s collection.
