Mission collection surpasses average

The Mission Sunday collection in the Archdiocese of Baltimore in October 2007 resulted in more than $240, 000 that will help fund more than 1,100 missions worldwide.

Some $500 of the Oct. 20-21 collection was used for administrative expenses.

Of the money sent to the Pontifical Mission Societies, $232,131.77 will go into the General Fund of The Society for the Propagation of the Faith, and $8,700.87 will fund The Society of St. Peter Apostle, which trains native priests, brothers and sisters in mission countries.
