Dear Parishioners of Sacred Heart Parish,
In the coming weeks, Bishop Gary will be announcing Diocesan plans to aid in the present refugee crisis.
However, if you are like me and would like to know what you can do today, Fr. Karam Alraban, pastor of Ascension Parish in Parksville and a refugee priest from Baghdad,
has indicated that he personally witnessed the good works of the charity "Church in Need" and recommended it as a possible avenue to get need to the most desperate places.
