OKLAHOMA TORNADO FUND COLLECTION NEXT WEEKEND

A Second Collection for those affected by the recent Oklahoma Tornadoes will be taken at all Masses next weekend. The Diocese of Altoona Johnstown had received a letter from Cardinal Timothy Dolan. As the President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Dolan is asking every Diocese in the United States for their help in alleviating the suffering of those who have been so tragically affected by the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma. We have all seen the pictures of the devastation and have heard the stories of those who have, literally, lost everything. Cardinal Dolan is asking for our prayers and our financial support of these people. All monies collected will be forwarded to Catholic Charities, USA, who will then distribute them to the local Catholic Charities offices that are assisting in the recovery efforts. Please make checks payable to: Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church (we will then write one check to Catholic Charities). Please use an envelope with the words "Oklahoma Tornado Fund" for all donations you want posted to your household. More details to follow in upcoming bulletins.
