Bishop Richard Moth Launches Flood Relief Appeal for Peru

As a result of severe flooding hit Peru in March affecting both countryside and cities including areas in our twin Diocese of Chulucanas, where priests from Arundel & Brighton have served over the years, Bishop Richard has launched an appeal for flood relief in the parishes of our Diocese.

Bishop Dan in Chulucanas, has made known the plight of many of his people affected by this natural disaster. The homes and livelihoods of many in the Diocese have been hard hit. Bishop Richard Moth has asked parishes in the Diocese to take a special collection.

Bishop Richard offers his thanks, in advance, for your response to this need. He also asked that you remember in prayer Bishop Dan, all the people priests of his Diocese including Fr Hugh Dutton from our own Diocese serving in Chulucanas.

You can donate via a special donation site direct to the Diocese online or give via a second collection held in your parish for which you can use Diocesan second collection gift-aid envelopes.
