Collections

Combined Collection Program

Our Diocese initiated a Combined Collection Program that is conducted 3 times per year (June/September/October) for the benefit of 12 separate National/International collections.  In most Dioceses these appeals are conducted in each Parish as single collections on twelve separate occasions throughout the year.  As a result of the Combined Collection Program, the parishes of the Diocese of Norwich are now required to ‘take-up’ three collections instead of twelve.
