Diócesis de Orange: Centavos del Cielo
Since 1994, the Diocese of Orange has been collecting funds to support local Respect Life shelters, clinics, and centers that give immediate and long-term care to Orange County women, men, and families in crisis. This collection is one substantial way that our diocese promotes a culture of life in our community. These donations also serve as an opportunity for parishioners to participate in formation around life issues and practical efforts to help our neighbors affected by threats to the life and dignity of the human person.
This year the proceeds will benefit (*NEW* this year, share videos from selected organizations):
