As you have heard from the news and social media, Nepal and nearby parts of India were devastated by an earthquake and a resulting avalanche on Mt. Everest this week. With reports of nearly 6000 dead, please keep the victims and their families in your prayers. If you wish to give in order to aid our brothers and sisters in need, please consider a reputable charity such as Catholic Relief Services or The Red Cross, and read this article from Time about how to wisely give any aid in order to make sure it helps people.
