Charity is infectious, it excites, it risks and it engages! For true charity is always unmerited, unconditional and gratuitous!
— Pope Francis, Homily, February 15, 2015

This weekend, the Archdiocese of Denver will take up the Peter's Pence collection which provides the Holy Father with the funds he needs to respond to those who are suffering as result of war, disease, natural disasters, and oppression.

Formalized in 1871 by Pope Pious IX, the Peter's Pence collection falls on the weekend closest to the Feast os Sts. Peter and Paul. During the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis has called each of us to be a witness of charity. Thank you for your gift and being a pilgrim of charity around the globe, and please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in faith who are facing adversity.
