Updated: Note on the Alberta fires, including where to donate

May 05, 2016

Just a note that The Catholic Women’s League of Canada is praying for everyone in Fort McMurray, Alberta, and the surrounding area. We pray for your safety, your community, your homes, your loved ones and your pets.

United in One Heart, One Voice and One Mission, League sisters stand together to support the residents of Fort McMurray at this time of devastating loss. Donations are urgently needed. Member and councils may contribute to :

  1. The Diocese of St. Paul, 4410-51 Ave., St. Paul, AB  T0A 3A2. Cheques should be marked “fire relief”. Proceeds will be split between the Fort McMurray parishioners and the Fort McMurray Ministerial Association to be distributed to local residents in need.
  2. The Canadian Red Cross. Donations may be made online at http://www.redcross.ca/ or by cheque to the Red Cross at P.O. Box 39, Saint John, NB  E2L 3X3. Cheques should be marked “Alberta Fires Appeal”. All relief monies received by the Red Cross will be matched by the federal government.

Together, let us stand “shoulder to shoulder, heart to heart…bound by a solidarity that nothing can break.”
