Archdiocese of Dublin Special Collection for Haiti

PRESS RELEASE
26 January 2010

Special Collection for Haiti

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has announced that there will be a special collection at all Masses in the Archdiocese of Dublin on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th February to contribute to relief assistance and the reconstruction in Haiti.

While most of the collection will go towards relief work it is hoped it will also be possible to provide support for parishes and religious institutions which have been destroyed. This can be done through some religious communities which have Irish links.    

Mass goers in Dublin will be informed of the collection this weekend and are being asked to give their support generously on the weekend of the 6th and 7th.

ENDS
