Philippines Relief

It is with deep concern that we write to you today for the Victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda (“Haiyan”). You probably all have seen the pictures on the news of the disaster at this point and so we would like to take the time to ask for your assistance for the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus who are coordinating relief efforts there.

It has been said that this is the worst natural calamity ever to strike the Philippines. The death toll will be over 10,000 and nearly 3 million families have been effected.

In particular, our Jesuit community there has a deep connection with Canisius. We recently sent students on a summer immersion experience where some opted to stay and Study Abroad at the Ateneo de Manilla for the fall semester. We also sent a group of faculty to the Ateneo for nearly two weeks, including President Hurley, for an engaged and meaningful conversation with the faculty there.

Campus Ministry will be taking up a special collection for the Philippine Jesuit Foundation this weekend at masses to help with the cause. We’d also like to request donations from the faculty and staff which you can offer by dropping donations off in the Campus Ministry Office in OM 207 or by simply going to the Philippine Jesuit website and making your tax-deductible donation there.

Fr. Anthony F. Moreno, S.J., the provincial of the Jesuits in the Philippines, also offered these words on the aftermath of the disaster, click here.

We hope that you can assist our friends and colleagues in the Philippines with a small donation at this time of great need. On a personal note, two of my college roommates are from Manila and while they are safe, they do have family for whom they are concerned at this time. We appreciate your consideration:
