Our prayers go out to all those who experienced the fury of Hurricane Harvey. As residents begin rebuilding and healing following the storm, Bishop Ricken is asking parishes to conduct a second collection to assist victims and Dioceses affected by Hurricane Harvey. Resurrection will be holding this collection at Masses THIS WEEKEND, September 9th and 10th.
The funds collected in this one-time special appeal for Hurricane Harvey Relief will be used to support the efforts of Catholic Charities USA, the official domestic relief agency of the U.S. Catholic Church, as they and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for necessities such as water, food, shelter, and medical care as well as to the long term needs to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction, and of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for pastoral and reconstruction aid to the Church.
Please make checks payable to Resurrection and memo for Hurricane Harvey relief.
Parishioners may also make their donation by credit card through the Catholic Charities USA website: www.catholiccharitiesusa.org.
Thank you for your generous care for those in need.
