Special collection for victims of Typhoon Haiyan

Bishop Coleman has authorized pastors to take up a special collection to support relief efforts for the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan. The proceeds from this collection will be sent by the Diocese to the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and to Catholic Relief Services to help the Filipino people recover from the calamity. Next weekend’s (Nov. 23-24) second collection will be for that purpose. Second-collection contributions not placed in the envelopes marked for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) will be used instead for this special collection to aid the typhoon victims.
