MISSION AND MINISTRY | Indonesia is facing a long and painful recovery from the devastating earthquake and tidal wave that two weeks ago struck near the city of Palu on the island of Sulawesi. The twin disasters caused the loss of more than 1,400 lives and left tens of thousands homeless.
LMU’s Office of Campus Ministry and the Center for Service and Action have teamed up to raise funds for the humanitarian relief efforts supported by Catholic Relief Services. CRS, the international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States, is on the ground in Palu and is helping with pipeline logistics, temporary shelter and relief supplies. The agency alleviates suffering and assists people in need in more than 100 countries, without regard to race, religion or nationality.
How can you help? Campus Ministry will be dedicating the Sunday Mass collections on Oct. 14 and Oct. 21 to CRS relief efforts. In addition, monetary donations for CRS in Indonesia will be accepted by the Office of Campus Ministry in Malone 210 and CSA in St. Robert’s Annex for the next two weeks. Your generous donation will help CRS provide emergency aid and assist the most vulnerable, including those who have been displaced from their homes.
