Church Supports Catholic Efforts to Relieve Hunger in Tahiti
Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints presented to French Polynesian Catholic leaders on Friday 25 August a donation of food from the Church that will be given to individuals and families going through difficult times.
Elder Stevenson was accompanied during his visit with Catholic Archbishop of Papeete, His Grace Jean-Pierre Cottanceau, by Elder O. Vincent Haleck, president of the Pacific Area of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Elder Benjamin Sinjoux, Area Seventy.
Elder Stevenson, Elder Haleck and Elder Sinjoux were warmly welcomed by Monseigneur Cottanceau and some of his colleagues. They discussed issues relating to homelessness in Tahiti and the need to provide food to those in desperate circumstances.
Elder Stevenson affirmed the support of the Church to the very worthwhile efforts of the French Polynesian Catholic Church to feed the poor and support them in other humanitarian ways.
The Church reaches out worldwide to help the poor and needy with partners including Catholic Relief Services, Catholic Charities and Caritas.
