LA Archdiocese special collection for Ukraine aid hits $1 million

A special collection at parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has raised more than $1 million in donations for Ukrainian humanitarian relief.

As of April 21, online donations, checks, and cash received during Masses in the archdiocese on the weekends of March 12-13 and March 19-20 totaled just over $985,000, while another $17,000 was added through school collections coordinated by the Missionary Childhood Association of Los Angeles.
