New Credit Card Launched to Benefit Catholic Missions
By Seth Harbison
The Society for the Propagation of the Faith and Washington Mutual teamed up this week to launch the World Missions Visa Card, which will benefit Catholic Church missions throughout the world.
World Missions Visa cardholders will have 1% of their card purchases donated to the Society for the Propogation of the Faith. According to a press release, the Society supports the Catholic Church’s “pastoral and evangelizing mission in more than 120 countries throughout Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands and Latin America, including support for educational and healthcare efforts. Just $10 generated from this program can buy clothing for 10 Catholic school children in the Sudan for a year; $4 buys enough food for one week for a kindergarten program in the Missions where children learn the basics and discover, through the service of local Sisters, the love of Jesus.”
According to Washington Mutual, over one million Catholics will receive an offer for the card by mail.
