The Alberta government has declared a provincial state of emergency. Approximately 90,000 have evacuated their homes. As of May 4 at 3:30pm, the Alberta Government website stated, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed with the Canadian Forces for air support to assist with transportation as needed.
The federal government will match donations to the Canadian Red Cross to help those affected by the wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
Please make your donations through the following methods:
Mail: Canadian Red Cross, P.O. Box 39, Saint John, NB E2L 3X3
A prayer from the Diocese has been sent to all the parishes. To join the prayer efforts, please save the image and pray with your friends and families for those suffering the loss of their homes, those still being evacuated and the emergency service providers who are putting their lives on the line to help those in need.
