Please continue to remember in your prayers our sisters and brothers in the Philippines. The media coverage is beginning to diminish, but not the needs of those who were in the path of Typhoon Haiyan. The estimate is that 4,000,000 people have been displaced. They are in need of everything in order to rebuild their homes, their families, their lives. In the face of unimagineable devastation, they remain hopeful because of YOU. Your caring words, prayers, and actions give the youngest to the oldest hope and a reason to give thanks. 
The Sisters of St. John the Baptist have many Filipino Sisters serving the poor and orphaned in the areas most severely damaged. Sr Rosita Nunez, CSJB who served in the States and is now back in the Philippines sent the following message from Manila:

"Our Sisters in Leyte, the island that is hardest hit by the super typhoon,  are working directly with the people. Our school and convent are in use as shelters. They are serving hundreds of people. Help and supplies are  desperately needed"

Donations to help the relief effort may be sent to:

Sisters of St. John the Baptist
Typhoon Relief Effort
57 Cleveland Place, Staten Island, NY 10305

100% of every donation will be sent directly to our Sisters in the Philippines.
