Philippine Earthquake Relief for one of our Dominican Sisters' Schools

One of the schools in the Philippines run by the Dominican Sisters here at St. Thomas was badly affected by the 6.6 magnitude earthquake on October 29, 2019.  They are going to have to demolish and rebuild due to the extensive damage.  The cost for this is a great burden for the sisters, and Fr. Matthew has graciously allowed the sisters to have a table after Masses in order to ask for donations to help with rebuilding.  Please stop by the table after Mass if you are able to help, and to get more info. Cash or check donations will be accepted (Check made payable to St. Thomas, with earthquake relief in memo line).
