In support of continued relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, Archbishop Charles Chaput is asking all archdiocesan parishes to take up a one-time special collection on a weekend of their choosing in November.
All contributed funds will support hurricane victims in the United States through Catholic Charities USA, and aid to the people of Haiti and other victims through Catholic Relief Services.
Individuals may also contribute directly to the efforts by visiting the websites of Catholic Charities USA or Catholic Relief Services, the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic Church in the United States.
The special collection is part of a national initiative called for by Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, to benefit the victims of natural disaster throughout the nation.
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.
