Over the past few days one of the most powerful storms ever recorded destroyed entire villages and devastated cities across the Philippines and Vietnam. More than 10,000 people are feared dead in Super Typhoon Haiyan and more than 10 million people have been affected. The full effect of the structural damage is still unkown. We are currently taking donations for the Catholic Relief Services/Philippines Typhoon Relief Effort. Checks may be made payable to: St. Joseph Church. We will forward all monies to the Diocese of Grand Rapids.
