Philippines Devastated by Typhoons
and Floods Leaving Many Homeless

Dear Fellow Parishioners of St. Joseph Fullerton,

Many Filipinos are in need of immediate help after suffering the brunt of Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco), which came only a week after Super Typhoon Rolly (Goni), 2020’s most powerful tropical storm the world has even seen.  On November 12th, Typhoon Ulysses battered 1/3 of Philippines, with many losing family members, leaving several communities flooded and homes roofless.

 This triggered immediate appeals for rescue, aid, and relief as the typhoon left massive floods in the region.  Seeing the impact of Typhoon Ulysses in hard-hit areas, various groups quickly responded to relief appeals from affected communities.

 St. Joseph Outreach Committee is initially working to provide assistance to distribute basic necessities like food water, dry clothing and shelter by restoring and rehabilitating their homes.  We are appealing to the kind generosity of your heart to help our brothers and sisters in the Philippines in this time of their great need.  We need people like you who can contribute to change their present situation especially that Christmas is coming to bring hope, love and joy to them.

 Thank you in advanced, and may our good Lord return in hundred folds, abundant blessing as well as good health of mind, body and spirit to you and your love ones.

St. Joseph Outreach Committee

We want to thank all those who contributed to our Advent international outreach efforts. Thanks to the generosity of many parishioners, we were able to raise a total of
$18,000 dollars for parishioners at San Mateo Church in Isabela, Philippines! We also want to thank the Knights of the Fr. Burggraff Council who pulled their resources together to make a substantial gift as well.
