Collection Letters


Below are the letters required to be published as a full page or half page in parish bulletins the weekend before the collection occurs. These letters are from the Bishop and the branding standards of the letter should be followed.  The letter may also be read aloud, in addition to it being printed in the bulletin and shared on your parish’s social media and/or website.  If you have questions about the letters, please contact the diocesan  Director of Communications and Development (Jennifer Trefelner). If you have questions about reporting and submitting collection funds, please contact the diocesan Finance Office.
