The Filipino Apostolate of Boston, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Boston and the different local Filipino organizations and communities in Boston and nearby areas, has scheduled a special Mass to offer prayers for the repose souls of those who perished in the storm and for the strength to bring the needed healing to the injured.  During the Mass, a collection will be taken to assist our Filipino brethren (kababayans) affected in recovering from this natural disaster.
The Special Mass will be held on Saturday, November 16th, 6:30 PM at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, 1400 Washington St, Boston, MA 02118.  All are welcome to attend.  Limited parking is available.

Is this going to be a fund raising too or just a mass dedicated to the victims of the Yolanda superstorm? I think we should really organize a fund raising event (asap) in order to help more. We did one when the Philippines was hit by Ondoy, but this one is way more catastrophic than that.

This is a great effort. However, i think we can do more to help. This will be a long process of recovery and they will need a lot of assistance. The Filipino community in Massachusetts are very generous people. I am sure that they will support us if we do a fund raising event. I am speaking in behalf of my group that would love to do this. I really hope that the officers of the various Filipino communities would consider this.
