Special Haiti Emergency Collection August 28-29

Archbishop Hebda is asking all archdiocesan parishes to join with U.S. Catholics in an emergency collection for those suffering the devastating earthquake in Haiti. 

On August 14, a massive 7.2 magnitude quake hit Haiti leveling homes and businesses, leaving many without shelter or food. Hospitals and clinics are overwhelmed. Still struggling from the 2010 damaging earthquake, the country was also hit by Tropical Storm Grace adding to the devastation. Help is critical for our Haiti brothers and sisters desperate to survive.

A collection will be taken after communion at all Masses at our parish the weekend of August 28 and 29, and gifts will be forwarded to the USCCB Bishops Emergency Disaster Fund created to support relief efforts through Catholic Relief Services in situations like Haiti. 

Thank you, St Max parishioners, for your generosity.
