INDONESIA: Catholics in East Java province are collecting money to help the victims of Mount Bromo that erupted on Dec. 30.

“We are raising funds, which will be used to buy basic necessities to be distributed to the victims,” said Father Ignatius Adam Kuncoko from St. Anthony Church in Pasuruan.

He said his parish and two others nearby have sent their parishioners to help people clean the ash from their houses after the volcanic eruptions. Mount Bromo had also erupted on Nov. 26. Around 25,000 villagers near Mount Bromo were affected.
