WASHINGTON DC (ACI Prensa) - "La Colecta para la Iglesia en America Latina es una oportunidad para que los catolicos de las Americas compartan su fe y se acerquen mas a Cristo", dijo el Obispo Auxiliar de Brooklyn, Mons. Octavio Cisneros, en referencia a esta iniciativa que tiene mas de 50 años.

El Prelado, recien nombrado Presidente del Subcomite para la Iglesia en Latinoamerica, agradecio "a los fieles de los Estados Unidos por su compasion y generosidad hacia sus hermanas y hermanos en America Latina y el Caribe. He visto de primera mano a las personas en muchos paĂ­ses que se benefician de esta generosidad".

En su nota, la USCCB informo que la colecta respalda el trabajo del subcomite mediante "el financiamiento de subvenciones para esfuerzos pastorales, como capacitacion de lĂ­deres laicos, formacion de seminaristas y religiosos, ministerio de prisiones y ministerio de jovenes, entre otros".

Indico que en 2018 la colecta otorgo casi 7.5 millones de dolares "en subvenciones para apoyar a la Iglesia en America Latina y el Caribe, incluidas las areas devastadas por recientes desastres naturales".
