About Haiti


By now everyone knows about the Haiti earthquake. There has just been a strong aftershock as well.

For any who are wanting to contribute, you can do so at church. Just put it in an envelope marked "Haiti relief". The church will send it to a Canadian aid agency such as the Red Cross

Make the cheque payable to St. Herman's this Sunday; time is of the essence.

Unfortunately, Canadian tax regulations put severe limits on how much money registered Canadian charities (such as churches) can send out of the country directly, so it is not practical for us to send via IOCC or other Orthodox agencies located in the US. Therefore Archbishop Seraphim sent a note to the clergy list suggesting that parishes send contributions to an agency such as the Red Cross
