Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
The Philippines were struck by the worst disaster in their history when Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the country. Nearly 10 million people are in need of aid and hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes. Pope Francis has urged us to help our brothers and sisters in the Philippines concretely, as well as through prayer. The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace are launching an emergency humanitarian campaign. On Sunday, November 24, at all Masses, a special second collection in the Archdiocese will be taken for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Their most urgent needs are food and water. Development and Peace’s main partners in the Philippines is coordinating the distribution of food and shelter for those suffering this catastrophe. Donations made to Development and Peace for relief efforts are eligible for the matching fund program announced by the Canadian government. Donations will be matched until December 9,2013. In order to make your donation, please make your cheques payable to your parish or donate online at www.devp.org. In addition, Couples for Christ, through Answering the Cry of the Poor (ANCOP International Canada) has a close connection with the Filipino community and with the Philippines. They will be collecting funds for CFCANCOP Foundation Philippines who will be involved more specifically in long-term rebuilding of houses and communities. I urge you to be as generous as you can in the Philippines’ moment of need. With gratitude for your generosity toward those stricken and with my prayers for you and your family, I remain
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Michael Miller, CSB
