Argentineans urged to be generous in helping the poor

.- A committee of the Argentinean Bishops Conference is urging Argentineans to be generous in a special collection that will be taken up this Sunday to help the country’s poor. The Committee for Aid to the Regions Most in Need asked the faithful to “be as generous as possible” with the national collection “More for Less,” which will be taken up this weekend in parishes throughout the country.

In a letter addressed to the bishops, the committee recalled that the theme for this year is “Give generously and you will receive a hundred fold.” 

“With new statistics and more precise analysis of the pastoral and social reality, the campaign seeks to respond to the dioceses in regions most in need and also to open channels for the many diocesan projects,” the committee said.

Likewise, the committee expressed its desire that “the amount be such that it be an expression of our desire to help one another”. 

“It is necessary that all the bishops support this collection and motivate the clergy and the faithful of each dioceses, so that this work of all might continue to grow,” the letter concludes.
