PROVIDENCE — The Peter’s Pence Collection is taken up worldwide each year to support the most disadvantaged including victims of war, oppression, natural disaster and disease.
Due to the restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, those wishing to provide financial support for the Peter’s Pence Collection may do so in alternative ways this year only.
Parishioners may submit their contributions electronically by visiting www.peterspence.va, by means of the regular offertory envelopes to the parish during Mass or by sending contributions directly to the Diocesan Fiscal Office. Checks should be made payable to the Diocesan Service Corporation and be clearly marked “Peter’s Pence Collection” on the notation line. The mailing address is:
Diocesan Service Corporation
1 Cathedral Square
Providence, RI 02903
The Peter’s Pence Collection supports the Pope’s philanthropy by giving the Holy Father the means to provide emergency assistance to those in need because of natural disaster, war, oppression and disease.
