National and Diocesan Collections

Contribute to second collections to help support the Church's pastoral work at home and around the world by giving to the second collections taken up in your parish. If you miss your parish collection, or wish to give outside of the collection, you may send your donation to:

Office of National Collections
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
P. O. Box 96278
Washington DC 20090-6278

Make your check payable to USCCB-name of collection (e.g. USCCB-Church in Latin America, USCCB-Catholic Communication Campaign, etc...).

Gifts for the Peter's Pence Collection should NOT be sent to USCCB but instead should be sent directly to the Vatican through the Apostolic Nunciature in the United States at 3339 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Washington DC 20008.

The following collections are approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) for the specific needs of the Church. These collections are taken up in parishes as a second collection after the Sunday offertory.
