Special Collection to Support Humanitarian Relief: Harvey & Irma

Earlier I authorized a special collection to provide assistance to those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Funds donated and sent to the diocesan finance office will be forwarded to the USCCB for disbursement either to Catholic Charities USA or directly to affected dioceses. Since then we have again seen countless images of nature’s powerful forces unleashed in Hurricane Irma. It not only created haunting destruction in the southeast of the United States, it left communities unrecognizable and took many lives in the Caribbean islands including Puerto Rico, the American Virgin Islands and many others. We give thanks for the civil servants and first responders that provided advance warning of the storm and facilitated a historic evacuation, no doubt limiting the loss of life.
