The Offertory, or Collection, at Mass is an integral part of the Sunday liturgy, not just because it is the primary means by which the parish receives financial support from the parishioners, but because it is also an expression of our gratitude to God for the blessings He has given us to return a portion of them back to Him for use by His Church.
As Catholics, not only do we support our parish family, but also our greater community around us. The second collections allow us to give resources to both our region and the world. Find this year’s collection schedule here. Also, find help on scheduling Second Collections here.
