St. Bridget parish will conduct a special second collection to help with relief efforts in the U.S. and in Haiti on the weekend of October 29-30.
As determined by The Catholic Diocese of Richmond: 75% of the collection will be directed to Catholic Relief Services to help with humanitarian aid in Haiti and the other 25% will be designated towards Catholic Charities USA to help with relief efforts in the United States.
Let us pray for all affected by Hurricane Matthew, for those who have lost their lives, for their families coping with the loss, for the thousands struggling to recover and for our first responders working around the clock to assist all in rescue and recovery efforts. Let us ask for the intercession of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, the Patron Saint of Haiti, to strengthen and protect those most in need at this time. Thank you for your prayers and your generosity.
