Catholic Relief Services will host a lunchtime reflection on the church’s relief work in the Philippines one year after Typhoon Haiyan on Thursday, Nov. 6 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center, 222 N. 17th Street in Philadelphia.
Last November the storm struck the island nation causing the tragic loss of thousands of lives and widespread destruction. In the wake of this catastrophe, the Catholic Church was there, joining hands with Filipinos to pick up the pieces.
Caroline Brennan of Catholic Relief Services’ Humanitarian Response team, who visited the Philippines soon after the typhoon, will share stories from her time in the Philippines and provide an update on the current situation.
A simple lunch of soup and bread will be served.
Please RSVP by Nov. 1 to Anne H. Ayella at 267-262-8901 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
