The Diocese of Austin is taking up a special collection this weekend, May 23 & 24, for the work of Catholic Relief Services in Nepal, to assist those who have suffered as a result of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake which struck Nepal in the late morning of April 25, toppling buildings and homes, causing widespread panic, and claiming thousands of lives. Our Church mourns the terrible suffering of our brothers and sisters affected by this powerful earthquake. Please join with the Catholic community across the United States in responding to our suffering brothers and sisters. CRS is the official humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the U.S. and is already responding to urgent needs for shelter, water and food in Nepal. Please be generous. For more information, go to CRS.org.

At the 10:30 a.m. Mass this Sunday, May 24, our Paulist Associates will be making their yearly renewal of promises.
