Second Collection Will Benefit Typhoon Haiyan Victims

Second Collection Will Benefit Typhoon Haiyan Victims November 14, 2013

News is out this week from the USCCB on the upcoming “Second Collection” to benefit relief efforts in the Philippines:

The U.S. bishops expressed their solidarity with the people of the Philippines after the devastating effects of Typhoon Haiyan in a letter to the president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines. The bishops will take up a special collection in parishes across the U.S. Proceeds from the collection will go to both immediate humanitarian needs and the cost of long-term reconstruction.

I love this special graphic created by Br. Michael O’Neill McGrath — a gift to Catholic Relief Services — which reminds us in such a compelling way of the help needed in the region:

Finally please take a moment and watch this video from Catholic News Service which describes some of the reason this second collection is so greatly needed:
