St. Therese’s Carmelites in the Philippines Need Our Help!
As you know, Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines last weekend. The Carmelites have a strong presence there and Fr. Buenafe, Prior of our Philippines Carmelite Province, has let us know that, while our Carmelites are safe, there is much destruction to some of the convents and priories along with devastation to the people they serve.
The Carmelites in the Philippines have set up Task Force Carmel Cares to assist those in need. You can help by donating to their efforts through the Society of the Little Flower. Your donations will go directly to the Carmelite efforts in the Philippines.
St. Therese knew she acted as the hands and heart of Jesus while she was here on earth, and we have the same responsibility to those in need.
Please keep all the people of the Philippines in your prayers as they work to rebuild their lives and mourn the loss of loved ones.
