SPECIAL COLLECTION THIS WEEKEND FOR HAWAII VOLCANO RELIEF EFFORTS

We have all seen the news reports this past spring about the devastation and pain that the people of Hawaii Island have experienced following the eruption of the Kilauea Volcano. As Christians, we are called to bring healing to suffering. In response to a call from the Bishop of Honolulu for aid, Cardinal Tobin has authorized a special collection to be taken up this weekend in the Newark Archdiocese to assist in relief efforts in the aftermath of the devastation. Checks should be made out to St. Joseph Church with “Lava Recovery” on the memo line. Donations may also be dropped off at the Rectory during the week or in the second collection next weekend.
