Bishop Rafael Romo Muñoz of Tijuana, Mexico, called on the faithful this week to actively participate in the diocesan tithing campaign so that the Church could have the necessary funds to carry out the work of evangelization.
The Tithing 2005 campaign will begin on the first Sunday of November and will last the entire month. The purpose of the project is to make Catholics aware of their responsibility to economically sustain the Church.
Bishop Muñoz explained that just as the government needs tax money, the Church needs to count on the collaboration of her members.
“The government uses measures to force people to fulfill their obligations, but in our case we don’t force anybody, but we do ask for the support we need so much for our city’s Diocese,” he stated.
