As you are no doubt aware from media coverage in the past few days, the Philippine nation has been devastated by the worst natural disaster in its history. Typhoon Haiyan has swept through the country, killing thousands of people and leaving another 700,000 homeless. It is estimated that over 11 million people are in need of aid. Many of our parishioners have friends and family in the Philippines who have been affected by this catastrophe.
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace have launched an emergency campaign for the Philippines. You may make your contribution to this charitable initiative by placing an envelope marked "Philippine Relief" together with your regular Sunday collection envelope by December 1, 2013. You are asked to include your name and address on the envelope so that your contribution can be recorded and an income tax receipt can be issued by the parish.
Cheques are to be made payable to the parish. All donations from parishioners will be forwarded to the Chancery Office and transferred to the emergency fund for the Philippines set up by Development and Peace.
The Federal Government has announced that it will match dollar-for-dollar any donation made to eligible Canadian charitable organizations for Philippine relief until December 9, 2013. This initiative will effectively double the amount of your contribution.
Please remember the people of the Philippines in your prayers and through your generosity.
