Catholic Relief Services – Haiti Emergency and Relief Efforts

As many of you may know by now, the Catholic community in the United States is responding immediately to the people of Haiti where a massive earthquake struck near the capital of Port-au-Prince on Tuesday. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and was still recovering from deadly 2008 hurricanes when the quake struck.  It is difficult to absorb the misery and devastation they are experiencing at this moment. As all of us struggle to make sense of this, we invite you to join Catholic Relief Services in prayer and in standing in solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster.

Please visit the CRS website below and read more about how your contribution can greatly help those in need.

In an act of solidarity with all of our brothers and sisters affected by this natural disaster, our Midnight Sports Tournament will begin with a short 20 minute prayer service.
