Well, the Diocese of Springfield- Cape Girardeau has outdone itself again! Your generous donations to the 2021 Retirement Fund for Religious collection is $66,971.82 with a total since the collection was launched coming to $2,518,073.43. This collection provides direct care for retired religious, such as medications, nursing care, and other day-to-day necessities. Over 30,000 elderly sisters, brothers, and religious-order priests benefit from the retirement fund for religious. Thank you for your generosity.

June 12 is the annual collection for the Catholic Communications Campaign. Did you know that half the collection stays in the diocese? Those funds help us to assist in issuing grant money within our diocese to broadcast Mass on the radio, assist in getting Wi-Fi for parishes, and help build parish Websites.
