Hundreds have died and more than 1,500 people were injured in the earthquake. Health workers abandoned an industrial strike to treat the casualties.

The pope has sent a telegram of concern to the bishops of the victims of the earthquake in Peru. Along with Catholics and peoples of many faiths around the world, there will be an opportunity to make donations for the relief of those suffering from this natural disaster. In our archdiocese, a special collection will for this purpose will be taken up on the weekend of August 25/26.
