Throughout the year the faithful are asked to contribute to their parishes through a weekly collection to help cover the cost of operations and support ministries. Sometimes, the parish will take up a second collection with a specific purpose. Many of these are national collections coordinated by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). These national collections offer an opportunity to help our neighbors in the light of the Gospel. The national collections are a powerful expression of this community. Our contributions help people across the street and around the world, people who struggle to practice the faith, people who live in great need.
Some of these collections are strictly local and will be distributed within the diocese. For additional resources and information about each collection, visit https://jacksondiocese.org/catholic-life/second-collections/.
