Catholic churches to collect money for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts

All parishes in the Archdiocese of Boston will have a special collection the weekend of Nov. 10 and 11 to raise money to help people in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy, the archdiocese said today.

Money collected will go towards relief in Haiti, Cuba, and communities along the East Coast and will be distributed to church agencies involved with support efforts, the archdiocese said in a statement.

The archdiocese asked that donors address checks to their parish, with “Hurricane Sandy Relief” in the memo line. After collections end, each parish will send one check for the combined contributions to the archdiocese.
