Collection for the Philippines
There will be a second collection this coming Sunday (17th November) to aid the relief effort in the Philippines, following the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan.
"I wish to express my closeness to the people of the Philippines and of that region. Unfortunately there are many victims and the damage is enormous. We pray now in silence ... for our brothers and sisters, and we will seek to also send concrete help." - Pope Francis.
