A special collection to support the Catholic League for Religious Assistance to Poland will be conducted in parishes throughout the Diocese of Buffalo during the month of August.

The dioceses in Poland use the funds to cover the expenses of leadership preparation for their priests studying at the Pontifical College and the Pontifical Institute in Rome since the annual cost of providing this formation more than $300,000.

Since 1943, the Catholic League for Religious Assistance to Poland has appealed for aid to the Church in Poland.   Without the assistance of the Catholic League, it would be impossible to maintain these institutions and to provide for the higher education of Polish priests as well as offer assistance to diocesan bishops seeking help for Polish hospitals, orphanages and parishes.
