Denarii Sancti Petri
Alm's of Saint Peter
Peter's Pence, Denarii Sancti Petri, or "Alms of St Peter" are donations or payments made directly to this Church online, rather than through local parishes. Initially, it was done as a pious contribution, whereas later it was required by rulers, and collected, more like a tax.
In 1871, Pope Pius IX formalized the practice of lay members of the church "other persons of good will" providing financial support to the Holy See. Modern "Peter's Pence" is used by this Church for philanthropy throughout the world.
