Second Collection in parishes to help Nepal earthquake victims
April 29, 2015
Parishes in the Diocese of Rochester have been encouraged by Bishop of Rochester Salvatore R. Matano to conduct a Second Collection at all Masses the weekend of May 9/10 to aid victims of the April 25 earthquake in Nepal.
All proceeds collected will be sent to Catholic Relief Services, which is helping to provide emergency services and long-term recovery efforts. Thousands of people died and hundreds were injured in the magnitude 7,.8 earthquake about 50 miles northwest of Kathmandu, Nepal’s capital.
