At Holy Family’s Masses this weekend, Father Dan Atkins will be asking Parishioners to give to a second collection for victims of the Tornado on March 2. Dean of the New Albany Deanery, Father Sonny, was ask to communicate this response, through the office of Bishop Coyne in Indianapolis.
Masses are held at 5:00 p.m. Saturday, and 8:30 & 10:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Sunday.
Parishioners, staff, teachers of the school, and their friends and families have been affected by this devastating event.
Father Dan recommends that this second collection is one way to help immediately. This collection is to go to Catholic Charities, who is sending their Disaster Coordination into Henryville and other areas to assist in the recovery effort.
He also suggests offering expertise and assistance to The Red Cross to help tornado victims. Visit their website to learn more.

Father Dan has asked the parish and school to schedule no meetings from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, in reverence of Holy Week.
Please make note of this as leaders of parish and school, and perhaps personally in your own lives. As a parish staff, we will observe the time usually taken for meetings to reflect on the Lord’s suffering.
