Hurricane Ike Relief Appeal
September 9, 2008
JOHNSTOWN, PA - His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas has established a diocesan-wide relief effort for the horrific damage in Texas and Louisiana caused by Hurricane Ike. Each diocesan parish is asked to take up a special collection on Sunday September 21, 2008. It is requested that each parish forward their parish gift immediately after the collection so that it arrives at the Chancery no later than September 26, 2008. Parish checks are to be made payable to ACROD. The Diocese will then forward a sum-total gift to an appropriate relief agency.
