Please remember in your prayers our sisters and brothers in the Philippines. Hundreds of thousands have lost everything.
The Sisters of St. John the Baptist have many Filipino Sisters serving the poor and orphaned in the areas most severely damaged. Sr Rosita Nunez, CSJB who served at St. John Villa High School and is now back in the Philippines, sent the following message from Manila:
"Our Sisters in Leyte, the island that is hardest hit by the super typhoon, are working directly with the people. Our school and convent are in use as evacuation centers. They are serving hundreds of people. Help is desperately needed."
Donations to help the relief effort may be sent to:
Sisters of St. John the Baptist
100% of every donation will be sent directly to our Sisters in the Philippines.
