The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Office of National Collections sent recognition July 12 of the Diocese of Trenton’s generous 2023 contribution to its Collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe. In total, faith communities of the Diocese contributed $73,802.65.
“I am grateful for your assistance in facilitating the generous gifts of the parishioners in your Diocese,” wrote Mary Mencarini Campbell, executive director of the USCCB Office of National Collections.
Contributions to the collection will help provide emergency relief to the people of Ukraine, rebuilding the Church in former Soviet-held Georgia, and other communities of the region that have been oppressed by communism, world wars and crimes against humanity.
