Dear Fathers,

No regular special collections are scheduled during the month of May, to give parishes space for local Stewardship efforts.  However, given the devastation caused by the recent earthquake in Nepal, pastors have permission to take up a special collection, with the funds to be given to Catholic Relief Services, to help earthquake survivors.  

As with other special collections, a parish check for the total amount collected should be sent to the Diocesan Finance Office marked: CRS-Nepal.

For other resources, visit:

Accompanying this memo please find a CRS update on the efforts that have been undertaken so far to provide relief.  Let’s continue to keep the people of Nepal, and all those involved in recovery efforts, in our prayers.
