Mission for Ukraine
· ‘Cor unum’ in response to the Pope’s appeal ·
During the Regina Caeli on Sunday, 3 April, Pope Francis announced an extraordinary initiative for those suffering the consequences of violence in Ukraine.
Thus a collection is to be taken up in churches throughout Europe on Sunday, 24 April. Proceeds from the collection will be matched by an equal sum to be made available by the Pontiff himself and will benefit the residents of affected areas and internally displaced people. The Pontifical Council Cor Unum has been charged with the task of evaluating and approving the technical management of the funds, according to plans scrutinized locally by a special commission. A mission in Ukraine has been planned for the end of April by Msgr Giampietro Dal Toso, Secretary of the Dicastery.
