PHILADELPHIA CATHOLICS RAISE 700,000 DOLLARS TO HELP KOSOVAR ALBANIANS

          PHILADELPHIA, 6 (NE) A campaign organized by the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia collected approximately 700,000 dollars to help the Kosovar Albanian refugees, victims of the recent conflict at the Balkans.

          Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, Archbishop of Philadelphia, informed about this campaign emphasizing the testimony of compassion and love of the faithful of the archdiocese for those who suffer and are most in need.

          The campaign, begun in April, exceeded the initial expectations. It has been the greatest collection in the last eleven years. Cardinal Bevilacqua thanked Philadelphia's Catholics for "following the example of Jesus Christ" in this act of charity and solidarity.
