IN SOLIDARITY WITH FORT MCMURRAY
Following the devastating fires that are still rampant in Fort McMurray, Alberta, the Conference of Catholic Bishops invites us to pray and raise funds for the victims of Fort McMurray and surrounding area.
Personal donations may be made to the Canadian Red Cross. Bishop Terrio has confirmed that one-half of any contributions will be to assist the Catholic parishes and parishioners of Fort McMurray, while the other half will be forwarded to the Fort McMurray Ministerial Association for ecumenical assistance to those who have lost homes and jobs. These donations for the Diocese are to be forwarded to: Ms. Janice Atwal, Financial Officer, Diocese of St. Paul, 4410 – 51st Avenue, St. Paul, AB T0A 3A2.
