My dear people, 

All the news and photos from Haiti are horrific. Cardinal O’Malley has asked for a special collection to be taken up on the weekends of August 21-22 and 28-29. We will do that. If you do make a contribution, please indicate on your envelope or check memo, HAITI RELIEF, with checks payable to the Congregation of St Athanasius. On August 30th we will send these funds to the archdiocese for sending on to Haiti.As an alternative you might make contributions directly through Catholic Relief Services, 228 W. Lexington St., Baltimore, MD 20201-3443. (For more information, email
