Advisory from Bishop Larry Silva regarding 
DISASTER RELIEF COLLECTIONS

A couple of weeks ago, I authorized each parish to conduct a second collection on a weekend of its choosing in September for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.  Since then there have been several other hurricanes which have devastated various Caribbean islands and some U.S. states and a huge earthquake in Mexico City.  We know that the Catholic community has been very generous in responding to these crises, and we thank you.  Any donations – whether through Sunday collections or individual donations – that you would like to make can be sent either to your parish with the “Disaster Relief” designation, or to the Diocese of Honolulu (1184 Bishop Street, Honolulu, HI 96813) with the same designation.  All proceeds will be sent to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which has devised a means of distributing the contributions as equitably as possible among those who need them.  Meanwhile, let us also support our suffering brothers and sisters with our prayers.

Thanks,
Bishop Larry Silva
