Bishop Murphy Authorizes Special Collection for Those Suffering from Oklahoma Tornado

From the Diocese of Rockville Centre:

"ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. – May 17, 2013 – The Most Reverend William Murphy, Bishop, Roman Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre asks that all parishes join in prayer for those who are suffering after the tornado in Oklahoma this week, particularly for those who were injured and those who have died.

To support those in need at this time the bishop authorizes a special collection to be taken at the Masses either this weekend or next. Pastors are asked to remit proceeds of the collection to the finance office as soon as possible so that the aid can be sent to help the Church in Oklahoma meet immediate needs in the work of relief."
