You may have seen on the news the current volcanic activity occurring in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Much of he northern part of the island has been evacuated. The Diocese of Long Island has been assisting through the office of Bishop Leopold Friday and through Fr. Ulric Jones, who served this diocese in Queens. On a personal note, Fr. Ulric has been a role model in ministry to me and has been supportive from the time I entered the ordination process and he was on the Commission on Ministry.
Your support in these difficult times would be appreciated. We will be collecting at our services on 17,18, and 25 April. Please make your check out to St. James and put St. Vincent Relief on the Memo line. You may also give through tithe.ly by clicking this link https://tithe.ly/give?c=3376963.
