Help Catholic Relief Services respond to the June 3 Volcano Eruption in Guatemala
Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has responded to the June 3 volcano eruption in Guatemala that left entire communities buried in ash. The death toll from the volcano is expected to climb into the hundreds as rescuers make their way to villages devastated by mixtures of hot gas and rock. The impacted areas of Guatemala include Chimaltenango, Escuintla, and Sacatepéquez districts. CRS has an emergency coordinator in Escuintla who is working with government and local authorities, including the Church.
You can donate securely on-line at https://support.crs.org/donate/guatemala-volcano or by check to Catholic Relief Services, PO Box 17090, Baltimore, MD 21297-0303 (please write "Guatemala Volcano" on the check memo line).

It’s all to help support the Youth Ministry trip to Rock-The-Universe.
