Collection calendar

The USCCB designates the first or second Sunday in September for the National Collection for The Catholic University of America (September 6 or 13, 2020; September 5 or 12, 2021).

But please check the collection schedule for your diocese; the date of the collection in your parish may differ from what the USCCB recommends.
