Archbishop William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore, has asked all Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Baltimore to hold a special collection at Masses this coming weekend to support typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines.
All money raised will be directed to Catholic Relief Services in support of their efforts to provide humanitarian aid.
Parishioners are also encouraged to give directly to CRS at www.crs.org.
Be sure to visit the CRS web page with information on typhoon relief. Additionally, they have provided this infographic:
