In response to the USA Catholic Bishops’ appeal for a special collection to help the victims of Storm Sandy, be informed that a second collection will take place at the Masses on the weekend of the first Sunday of Advent (Dec. 1 and Dec. 2) in all four parishes of the Ohio River Cluster — St. Patrick in Cairo, St. Mary in Mound City, St. Catherine in Grand Chain, and St. Rose of Lima in Metropolis. Please give generously for the victims of Storm Sandy that hit not just the USA, but also Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, and other countries in the Caribbean. The proceeds from this second collection will be sent directly to the office of Catholic Charities USA. God bless you 100%.
