Archbishop Charles Chaput has requested all parishes in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to take up a special collection during June to support relief efforts for people affected by the tornadoes that devastated Oklahoma last month.
The collection is part of a national initiative led by New York Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, to benefit the victims of natural disasters throughout the nation.
All contributed funds will support Catholic Charities’ relief efforts for tornado victims and other victims of natural disasters.
The collection will take place on the weekend of either June 8-9 or June 15-16 at the discretion of individual pastors.
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.
