HURRICANE HARVEY RELIEF EFFORT: A message from Bishop Timothy Freyer

This past weekend we have seen the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey throughout a large part of Texas. As the rain continues, there will be even more devastation. I am grateful that so many of you included prayers for the people in Texas at Mass and ask that you continue to pray for those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Archbishop José Gomez, Vice President of the USCCB, has asked all dioceses throughout the United States to take up a special collection to support the relief and rebuilding efforts needed after Hurricane Harvey. These funds will be used to support the efforts of Catholic Charities USA as they reach out to provide humanitarian aid in the form of water, food, shelter, and medical care as well as support local dioceses in their care for those impacted by the hurricane.

A second collection will be held to support those affected by the hurricane on Sep. 2/3 or Sep. 9/10. You may also make a contribution online below.

Bishop Timothy Freyer
