This weekend St. Augustine will be holding a special second collection that was not announced until after our bulletin had been printed.
The second collection will be taken to provide humanitarian relief and pastoral support for our affected brothers and sisters in the Middle East.
The funds will be sent to Catholic Relief Services and will be used by them and other Catholic agencies working in partnership with the local Church to meet the most urgent needs facing people in Iraq, Gaza, Syria, and surrounding countries where refugees have fled.
Please be generous.
Cash and checks will be accepted. Please make checks payable to St. Augustine with “Middle East” in the Memo line.
