The National Collection for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS)
The National Collection for the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS), is scheduled to be taken every three years on the Sunday before Veterans Day. The next collection will be taken in most dioceses on the official date of Sunday, 6 November.
The mission of the AMS is, “Serving Those Who Serve.” The ministries offered benefit those who serve in all six branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, are enrolled in U.S. Military Academies, undergoing treatment at any of the 153 Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers, working in civilian jobs for the federal government beyond U.S. borders - and their families.
