Your marvelous response for the suffering people of Haiti

I am delighted and overwhelmed at the magnificent response of Catholics of the Diocese of Dallas to our appeal for the victims of the tragic earthquake that struck Haiti. The special collection resulted in over $740,000 in donations. There has never before been such an outpouring of generosity and love through a special collection for our brothers and sisters who have lost so much. The collection exceeded the special collection for Hurricane Katrina by $200,000.

Such generosity will be a blessing for the people of Haiti but it will also be a blessing for those who opened their hearts and their checkbooks.

My heartfelt thanks.

    Dear Bishop Farrell,
    I am a parishioner of St. Pius X parish. I grew up in the parish and am an alumna of St. Pius X Catholic School. I just subscribed to your blog and wanted to say how happy I am to see that you have taken the messages of both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI to heart in utilizing technologies as tools for catechesis and communication. I pray that our priests, bishops and other religious follow your outstanding example and follow suit in the near future. May God bless you richly! Your little sister in Christ. Bev
