Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino of Caracas, Venezuela is reminding Catholics of their duty to contribute financially to the Church.
In a Nov. 12 press release the cardinal called on Catholics to participate in the national campaign, “Support Your Church,” which will be held Nov. 27 and 28.
“We are all called to participate by contributing a portion of our economic resources” so that through our generosity, “the Church’s works can be sustained,” the cardinal said. He noted that “it is more of a blessing to give than to receive.”
He also urged Venezuelan Catholics to be generous with their time by participating in the activities of their parishes and dioceses.
The “Support Your Church” campaign will be used to help finance the Church’s work in Venezuela and will also support elderly and sick priests.
