The Bishop’s Collection is the annual appeal for Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri. Each year, this collection takes place in commemoration of World Day of the Poor. 

In his message for World Day of the Poor 2023, Pope Francis urges, “It is easy to delegate charity to others, yet the calling of every Christian is to become personally involved.”

There has never been a better time to become personally invested in Catholic Charities of Southern Missouri. Your donation enables us to provide compassionate social services to the most vulnerable populations across the southernmost third of our state. Your donation changes lives.
