This weekend's second collection: The National Black and Indian Mission

The National Black and Indian Mission Collection

Since 1884, proceeds from the Black and Indian Missions Collection (BIM) are distributed as grants to dioceses supporting and strengthening evangelization programs, which would otherwise be in danger of disappearing among the Black, American Indian, Eskimo, and Aleute communities of the United States.

The BIM collection is taken up in most parishes on the first weekend in Lent ... as it will at St. Landry Catholic Church. For more information please write: The Commission for the Catholic Missions Among the Colored People and the Indians, 2021 H Street, NW Washington, DC 20006-4207.

Visit or call (202) 331-8542 for more information.
