RE: ST. PETER’S PENCE COLLECTION 2019 (Obolo Sancti Petri)
Dear Monsignori and Fathers:
The special collection for the “Obolo Sancti Petri”, or also known as St. Peter’s Pence may be done on the Sunday closest to the birthday of the Holy Father Pope Francis (December 17) (DOP Ordo 2020).
With this in mind, and acting upon the approval of our dear Bishop Jesse E. Mercado, D.D., we would like to inform all Reverences that this year, the special collection for Peter’s Pence will be done on all Sunday Masses of December 15, 2019, the 3rd Sunday of Advent, including the Saturday anticipated Mass of December 14.
St. Peter’s Pence is the name given to the financial support offered by the faithful to the Holy Father as a sign of their sharing in the concern of the successor of St. Peter for the many different needs of the Universal Church and for the relief of those most in need.
Kindly remit said collections to the Diocesan Finance Office within ten (10) days.
(sgd.) REV. FR. CARMELO O. ESTORES
