Haiti Collection

Over the last two weeks Cathedral parishioners have been contributing to a collection for victims of the earthquake in Haiti. These collections, private donations and fundraising efforts at the Cathedral Primary School raised a total of just over £3650. This money has now been sent to three Catholic charities which have launched emergency appeals for relief work in Haiti: Aid to the Church in Need, Cafod and Mary's Meals. All three are currently working to provide emergency help for the many thousands in Haiti left without water, food and shelter, and each received £1219 from the Cathedral parish. Please continue to remember all the victims of the earthquake in your prayers.
