Prayers and Assistance for the people of Haiti

14 JANUARY 2010. On 12 January a massive and devestating earthquake struck the small island nation of Haiti. Among the thousands of dead is the Archbishop of Haiti and, reportedly, hundreds of priests. Please pray for the Haitian people and all those of good will who are lending their support.

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is accepting donations and mustering assistance for Haiti, which was still recovering from four hurricanes that swept through its shores in 2008. Donations can be made to CRS here. The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, Haiti is in critical need of all forms of assistance.

For the souls of those killed, we pray:

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
