Helping the Philippines

In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan members of the Ignatian family are receiving news from their sisters and brothers in the Philippines.

The Jesuits in the Philippines are also safe, although some do not yet know what has happened to family members. Their Provincial has urged them all to mobilise their resources in order to provide whatever assistance they can.

The Jesuits in Britain are launching an appeal for funds via Jesuit Missions. Schola Affectus has a link to the appeal letter from Jesuit Provincial Fr Dermot Preson.
