Bishop O’Connell remarks on the Roe vs. Wade recent Supreme Court Decision:


Bishop O’Connell forwards information on humanitarian aid to Ukraine

People have been calling the Chancery asking where and how they can help the people of Ukraine.  Various Catholic agencies are collecting donations to aid with the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, as people flee to escape Russian bombing and shelling.  Here are some places to donate (this list is not exhaustive):  The international Caritas confederation is collecting funds to help Caritas Ukraine. In the United States, that is through Catholic Relief Services. Internationally, you can donate through Caritas Internationalis.  The Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Philadelphia also has a link to donate.  Two pontifical agencies also are taking donations for Ukraine: Catholic Near East Welfare Association and Aid to the Church in Need. Internationally, Aid to the Church can be reached here.  The Knights of Columbus launched the Ukraine Solidarity Fund for humanitarian needs in Ukraine and through refugee sites in Poland.  Donations can also be made to Jesuit Refugee Service to support the agency’s work with those forced to flee conflict in Europe.  The Salesians also are accepting donations to help refugees

God bless the people of Ukraine.  Our Lady, Queen of peace, pray for us.

Bishop David O’Connell
