The February 6, 2023 earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria has caused the deaths of more than 40,000 people, injured countless more, and devastated the Turkish and Syrian people who are mourning unimaginable losses. Bishop Edward C. Malesic is requesting the prayers of the faithful for all those impacted by this disaster, and is asking those who are able, to give generously to support relief efforts.
Please join with Bishop Malesic and our Holy Father Pope Francis in praying for the souls of the departed, for the many others suffering in the wake of this tragic event, and for the emergency responders tending to them.
