A Mass for all affected by the Haiti earthquake will be celebrated at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20, at Incarnation of Our Lord Church in North Philadelphia.
Refreshments will follow in the school gymnasium.
The Philadelphia Archdiocese has raised more than $1.2 million through parish collections to aid earthquake relief efforts in Haiti. In addition, Catholic schools across the Archdiocese have raised more than $135,000.
All funds donated by parishioners and Catholic schools will go to Catholic Relief Services, the official international humanitarian, relief and development agency of the Catholic Church in the United States.
A collection to help CRS help Haiti was taken up in churches across the Philadelphia Archdiocese at weekend Masses Jan. 23-24. Of the Archdiocese’s 267 parishes, 186 – approximately 70 percent – had contributed $1,260,758 by Tuesday, Feb. 16.
Catholic schools across the Archdiocese had collected $135,888.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
