The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has asked that all dioceses in the United States hold a special collection to raise desperately needed funds to assist the recovery following the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan. Bishop Campbell has designated the weekend of November 30-December 1, 2013 for this collection.
This storm destroyed entire villages and wrecked cities across the Philippines and Vietnam. As many as 10,000 people are feared dead and more than 9 million people have been affected. The full extent of structural damage is still unknown. On this weekend that follows our national celebration of Thanksgiving, let us show our gratitude for the good things we enjoy by supporting those who are suffering in the Philippines and southeast Asia.
We wish to thank the Knights of Columbus and all the parishioners, including the Youth, who helped with the Spaghetti Dinner last Sunday.
Last November 9, the Parish held the Annual Holiday Bazaar. Special thanks to Mary Waterfield and Judith Mitchell who co-chaired the event. We thank all those parishioners who, through their generosity and hard work, helped make the event a big success. Net proceeds: $4,266.21. Thank you!
