Special Collection for Hurricane Relief October 6 & 7


The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has asked all bishops to consider taking up a special collection in response to the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Florence. This emergency collection is intended to support both the humanitarian and Church needs arising from the hurricane. 

To assist Catholic Charities USA in its role as the official domestic relief agency of the U.S. Catholic Church, please respond to the urgent needs of those people affected by Hurricane Florence and support our parish’s special collection the weekend of October 6 and 7. Checks should be made payable to either Cathedral of the Sacred Heart or St. Casimir parish. For more information on how to help those in need go to www.usccb.org or www.catholiccharitiesusa.org.

CPR, when performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival. If you are called on to give CPR in an emergency, you will most likely be trying to save the life of someone you care about. The truth is, when you see someone collapse, it only takes two steps to save a life.
Ushers and greeters are especially encouraged to come, but EVERYONE is invited! Everyone will learn how to perform chest compressions, use the defibrillators, and save someone from choking. Anyone can do it. Everyone should.

  Class taught by Helen Bagshaw, a Critical Care Nurse
 RSVP to Sandy at the Cathedral office, (507) 452-4770 by Thursday, Sept. 20th.
