TODAY’s Catholic Relief Services Collection (CRSC) supports Catholic Church organizations that carry out international relief and solidarity efforts. Programs include relief and resettlement for victims of persecution, war, and natural disasters; development projects to improve living conditions for the poor; legal and support services for poor immigrants; peace and reconciliation work for people suffering from violence; and advocacy on behalf of the powerless.

The CRSC also serves Jesus in the victims of human trafficking, those who suffer from unjust laws, and those who need pastoral care and humanitarian assistance across the globe. The funds collected through the CRSC support vital Catholic programs that share in the Catholic mission of promoting the sacredness of human life and the dignity of the human person. Through supporting today’s collection, you help Jesus in disguise.

Please be as generous to the CRS collection, as God has been to you, and your gift will be the right one.
