In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the annual collection for the Holy Land, customarily taken up on Good Friday, will be taken up this year on Sunday, 11 October instead at all public Masses. Parishes can either take up a second Sunday collection during Mass, place a donation box at the church entrance, or use some other means.
The total amount collected will be sent directly to the Holy See in support of our brethren in the Holy Land and the numerous pastoral, charitable, educational and social institutions and projects sponsored by the Church there.
Cheques issued for the above specific purpose should be made payable to “TheCatholic Diocese of Hong Kong” and sent to the Diocesan Procuration.
2. COLLECTION FOR THE PONTIFICAL WORK FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH
A second collection is to be taken up at all public Masses on Sunday, 25 October. The total amount collected will be reserved for the Pontifical Work for the Propagation of the Faith and sent directly to the Holy See as a contribution of our Local Church to the missionary activities of the Universal Church.
Cheques issued for the above specific purpose should be made payable to “The Catholic Diocese of Hong Kong” and sent to the Diocesan Procuration.
