Bishops launch Lenten fundraising drive in Argentina

.- The Council for Economic Affairs of the Bishops’ Conference of Argentina has begun a Lenten fundraising campaign entitled, “We Are All The Church, It is Time to Share,” that will last until Holy Week, in order to help sustain the work of the Church in that country.

The bishops of Argentina exhorted Catholics to “live the faith in communion so that our communities may be the living presence of Jesus in the world, and so that his message of love and salvation will reach all mankind.”

They noted that the Church is sustained mainly through the generosity of the faithful and that thanks to them the Church is able to help those in need.  The bishops said 50% of the Church’s total income comes from parish collections.

“The Church does so much,” the bishops said.  “We are thankful to be sent by Jesus to the world, and we are grateful for the generous work of priests, consecrated, and lay faithful.  There is still much to be done for Jesus to be proclaimed in every home and for the Gospel to transform our country into a nation of brothers and sisters,” they stated.
