Bishop Alan issued this urgent message for parishes in St Albans Diocese on 8th September.
“You will have seen reports in the media about Hurricane Irma and the devastation caused across the Caribbean which has badly affected parts of our companion diocese of North East Caribbean and Aruba, in particular the islands of Barbuda and St Martin.
I would encourage you to consider having a special collection over the next two weekends to help our Anglican brothers and sisters in the Caribbean. Please also ensure that prayers are said for all the victims of the Hurricane this Sunday and afterwards.
If you wish to give to the diocese for the rebuilding of churches vicarages and grants to parishioners who have been injured, please send your money to Holywell Lodge, marked ‘Hurricane Irma Appeal,’ cheques made out to ‘St Albans DBF’.
