Second Collection—Next Weekend—Earthquake Relief
The American Bishops have requested that a special collection be taken to assist the rebuilding in Mexico after the tragic earthquake. Among the many old buildings destroyed or severely damaged was the novitiate of the Friars in Mexico City. That was a building put up in the 1500s. The hope is that the immediate needs of the people and the long-term challenges of reconstruction may be assisted by this collection. Envelopes are available in the pews for the collection next weekend.
