  Filipino typhoon relief
... pdf version

November 14, 2013

My dear Sisters and Brothers:


I am certain that you have been deeply moved by the terrible situation in the Philippines resulting from last week's deadly typhoon. I also expect that members of your parish may be asking if it is possible to contribute to relief efforts through ANiC and ARDFC.

If you have read this week's Newsletter you will have noticed that this matter is well covered in the first news item on page 1, with a link on how donors can respond immediately to this desperate situation through ARDFC. The process is extremely user friendly and completely reliable.

Furthermore, every dollar we give in this manner will receive matching funds from the Canadian Government.

This need is made all the more personal to us because of our brothers and sisters in our Filipino Congregation of Holy Trinity in Edmonton.

The main purpose of this memo is to draw your attention to this item in the Newsletter and for you to both make the need known to your congregations and how they may go about responding in a financial manner.

I also call upon every parish to uphold the victims of this disaster in fervent prayer, especially on Sunday, November 17th.

In His Name,

The Right Reverend Donald F Harvey
Bishop and Moderator
