SPECIAL COLLECTION FOR NEPAL: On the weekend of June 6-7, our parish will take up a special collection for the relief efforts taking place in Nepal. Nepal has been struck with two earthquakes recently and our Church mourns the terrible suffering of the many thousands affected by this extraordinary natural disaster. These funds will be used to support the efforts of Catholic Relief Services (CRS) as it responds to the immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care as well as the long-term needs to rebuild the communities in the regions affected after widespread destruction. CRS is the official humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States. For additional information on the work of CRS, go to www.crs.org. As you always are, please be generous.
