Special Collection for Hurricane Relief

In a series of violent late summer storms, hurricane-force winds, accompanied by tropical storm rains, flooding and surges, have wrought significant destruction and displacement on the

Gulf Coast of Texas and Louisiana, in the Eastern Caribbean and Puerto Rico, as well as significant damage from Florida to the Carolinas.

At the request of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Vigneron has asked all parishes to consider taking up a special collection at Masses to support relief efforts. Funds given through this collection will support the humanitarian and recovery efforts of Catholic Charities USA, providing pastoral and rebuilding support to impacted communities.

Please put your donation in a plain white envelope marked “Hurricane Relief” marked on the outside. Parishioners donating by check should make their checks payable to the parish, with “Hurricane Relief” noted in the memo line.
