Archbishop Aspinall said clergy are helping to care for those most affected by the crisis. "This care will continue long after the crisis is over as people repair and rebuild their homes and livelihoods," he said.
"Parishes which have been hit hard economically will struggle for some time to pay stipends and other operating costs at a time when demands on clergy are greatest."
