Letter from Bishop David Torraville - re: Igor's devastation

We often give to those far afield who have suffered devastation.
Igor brought devastation into our own backyard.
I received this today from Bishop David Torraville.

Dear Friends,
There has been a great deal of flood damage on the Bonavista and Burin Peninsula as well as in Gambo area. We are making an appeal to our congregations to support the people of these areas through the Diocesan Disaster Relief Fund. We will work with parishes and community agencies in the affected areas to ensure that the money is used most effectively. We would ask for individuals to make a special donation at worship in the next couple of weeks. Place your donation in an envelope clearly marked Diocesan Disaster Relief, with your name and envelope number. As well parishes might like to sponsor an event to raise money for the Fund. May we answer God’s call to service as we help our neighbors.
