Story from USCCB.

WASHINGTON (May 12, 2005)—Over $150 million has been given to Catholic Relief Services, the U.S. bishops’ international relief agency, to address the tsunami crisis which struck Southeast Asia less than five months ago.

The donations are believed to mark the most money ever collected by the church in a single appeal.

The figures included donations directly from 168 of the nation’s 192 dioceses, eparchies, and territorial sees.
