Dear Friends in Christ,
Once again, the Catholic Diocese of Arlington is conducting a second collection to support the vital, life-sustaining services of Catholic Charities – the Parish Christmas Collection. You may not be aware how important this collection is to help us serve tens of thousands of our neighbors in need across our diocese.
While the BLA provides important funding, Catholic Charities needs much more support than the BLA alone can give. This second collection furnishes nearly 10% of the contributions we must raise every year.
Your generous gift allows us to serve the food, housing, healthcare and other needs of the "least of these" among us in the 21 counties and seven cities of our Diocese. This Christmas season, please prayerfully consider including Catholic Charities as part of your year-end giving.
Merry Christmas and may God continue to bless you,
