USCCB grants $9.2M to US mission dioceses

November 29, 2016

A subcommittee of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has granted $9.2 million to 84 US “home mission” dioceses, most of them in rural areas.

The funds are provided by an annual collection, and the figure represents an decrease of over $800,000 from the amount announced last year.

Projects funded include seminarian education, Catholic campus ministry, and Latino Catholic leadership training.
