Emergency Collection for Refugees

Archbishop Miller has approved an emergency collection at all Masses the weekend of Oct. 4 for the Syrian refugees. Funds raised in the collection will be distributed among three Catholic agencies with operating programs assisting Syrian refugees in their countries of asylum: the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, and Aid to the Church in Need Cana-da. Funds raised will be matched by the federal government. If you would like to donate immediately to any of the organizations, visit rcav.org/prayer-and-humanitarian-appeal.
