Caritas Internationalis is the Roman Catholic Church's world wide relief and help organization. They are coordinating efforts in many countries to help our sisters and brothers in need. The American branch of Caritas Internationalis is called Catholic Relief Services (CRS = CaRitaS).
Nativity of Our Lady Catholic Church in Darien will support the efforts of Caritas and the parishes of the Philippines with a special collection on Saturday, November 16 and Sunday, November 17. Donations can be in the form of cash or check. You will also have the opportunity to make an IMMEDIATE donation by phone text (SMS). Phone donations will go to the American Red Cross, cash and check donations to Catholic Relief Services.
You can give right now - you do not have to wait. You can use your credit card online.
