Cardinal Seán P. O'Malley has authorized a special second collection for all parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston, in support of relief efforts to those areas devastated by the powerful earthquake that struck Nepal on April 25. The special collection will take place on the weekend of May 2-3 or May 9-10, or at the discretion of each parish. All money collected will be distributed by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and other Catholic agencies working in partnership with the local Church to meet the most urgent relief efforts in that area. CRS emergency personnel have already arrived in Nepal to begin helping the tens of thousands of people affected by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake.
