June 28, 2020: (This date has been changed in light of the ongoing COVID-19 health emergency.) The Peter’s Pence Collection has ancient roots that reach all the way back to New Testament times. The early Christians provided material support that the
disciples -those preaching the Gospel – could distribute to those in need (see Acts 4:34-35, 11:29).
Today, the Peter’s Pence Collection is the way we, as members of the Catholic Church, unite ourselves to the concerns of the Holy Father. Donations to this collection support the charitable works of Pope Francis for the relief of those most in need. Find resources to support this collection on the USCCB website.
