Donate For Haiti In Mass This Weekend

The Diocese of Austin has asked all parishes to take up a collection for Catholic Relief Services (which does phenomenal work as a relief agency).  St. Mary's will be participating in this collection.  So, if you want to give in an easy way, bring extra money with you this weekend to give in the second collection.

Don't forget to pray for the people of Haiti.  They need it.  Things are getting worse, not better.

There is a lot of despair and violence in the streets.  Not to mention the government was corrupt already and now can't control what looks like anarchy.

From the Diocesan Administrator, Msgr. Michael Mulvey:
“Our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters on the island of Haiti. We join the global family in responding to their spiritual and physical needs with our prayers and through our pledges of monetary support,” said Msgr. Michael Mulvey, administrator of the Diocese of Austin. We ask that all parishes take up a special collection this weekend, Jan. 16-17 for the relief effort in Haiti. The collected funds will be given to Catholic Relief Services. To donate to Catholic Relief Services directly, call 1-877-HELP-CRS or visit www.crs.org.
