Peter's Pence Collection
The Peter’s Pence collection helps provide the Holy Father with funds for emergency assistance to those in need. The proceeds enable Pope Francis to assist the most disadvantaged in emergency situations including victims of war, oppression and disasters.
Peter’s Pence represents a small offering, accompanied by grand desires and visions. It is an offering that each member of the faithful decides to give to the Pope so that he can provide for the needs of the whole Church, and wherever it finds itself most in need.
Traditionally, the Peter’s Pence collection takes place throughout the Catholic world on 29 June, the Solemnity of the Holy Apostles, Saints Peter and Paul, but due to COVID-19, the Collection has been postponed to Sunday 4 October 2020.
