Archbishop's letter re Earthquake and Hurricane relief:

October 13, 2005

To all Pastors and parishioners in the Archdiocese of Ottawa

Despite the fact that there have been numerous catastrophes this year that have tested our generosity. I am calling on you once again to stand in solidarity with so many of our brothers and sisters who have been affected in Pakistan, India and South America. They are counting on us; on our prayers and our donations, both of which are necessary to offer hope to those who have lost everything their families, homes and jobs.

If you wish to make a donation, I invite you to send them directly to our Catholic organization Development and Peace, or to the Canadian Red Cross.

The address for Development and Peace is 5633 Sherbrooke St. E. Montreal, QC. H1N 1A3

Yours in Christ,

+Marcel Gervais
Archbishop of Ottawa
