Archbishop Christian Lépine would like for every parish and mission throughout the archdiocese of Montreal to hold a special collection during Sunday Mass on May 10, 2015, for the victims of the earthquake that devastated Nepal.
Funds raised will be given to Development and Peace, who will then distribute them to the partner organizations of Caritas Internationalis, already at work in Nepal. The government of Canada has announced that it will match all the contributions collected from now until May 25, 2015.
Thank you for coming to the aid of our Nepalese brothers and sisters that are in great distress.
