so that when the winds and rain and floods of life come,
we will not be swept away.

Special Collection for Relief efforts in Myanmar The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, together with the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace, has launched an emergency appeal for funds to assist the relief efforts in Myanmar (Burma) following Typhoon Nargis, which left more than 100,000 dead and millions of people homeless.
