Ghana: bishops authorise collection for US hurricane survivors
Comment Email Print
 Ghana's Catholic bishops have appealed to members of the faithful to support all those affected by Hurricane Katrina through donations and prayers. In a statement the Ghana Catholic Bishops' Conference appealed to Catholics and all people of goodwill to make a special collection in churches throughout the country either yesterday or next Sunday. A communiqué issued on September 8, and signed by the Bishops' Conference Vice President, Archbishop Gabriel Charles Palmer-Buckle of Accra, expressed the Conference's solidarity with and prayer for the victims "comprising the dead and their families, the injured, the homeless, the sick, the elderly and the vulnerable." The bishops recalled the famine that struck Ghana in the 1980s and the substantive donations made by the generous people of the United States to alleviate their suffering. Donations to the Ghana Catholic Church Fund, US Hurricane Victims would be sent to the US through the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as the contribution of the Catholic Church in Ghana.
