Special Collection for the Middle East

September 13, 2014 - September 14, 2014

The bishops of the United States will express their solidarity with Christians and other minorities in the Middle East in the face of ongoing violence and persecution by taking up a special collection. Proceeds from the collection will support immediate humanitarian and pastoral needs, as well as the cost of long-term church reconstruction.

The collection will be taken in parishes across the Diocese of San Jose on the weekend of September 13-14.

Thank you for your support of this special collection and for your continued prayers for the victims of this crisis.
