The Pontifical Council Cor Unum, which oversees and manages the Vatican’s charity work, has said that plans are underway for the special collection Pope Francis wants for Ukraine.
During his address before praying the midday Regina Caeli on April 3, the Pope asked every church in Europe to take up a collection for the suffering in Ukraine.
Cor Unum announced that the collection will be taken up April 24.
In a press release, the pontifical council also reported plans for a mission to Ukraine by Msgr. Giampietro Dal Toso, the Secretary of Cor Unum, by the end of this month.
“The proceeds from the collection will be added to a significant amount of money made available by the Holy Father which will benefit both residents in the affected areas and internally displaced persons,” the statement from the council explained. “The Pontifical Council Cor Unum is responsible for evaluating and approving the technical management of the funds, according to local projects reviewed by a special committee.”
