Thank you for considering a contribution to this Special Collection. Half of the proceeds will be forwarded to Catholic Charities to be distributed to needy families and individuals in our region affected by the storms. The other half will be used to cover repairs to parish and schools facilities not covered by insurance.
“God of hope and mercy, we lift up to you all victims of natural disasters and those responding with assistance and aid. Protect all who are in any form of danger; provide practical help to those in need; strengthen the weary, console the grieving, heal the suffering; and bless those engaged in disaster relief efforts with safety and courage. Help all people of good will to respond with compassion and generous hearts. Amen.”
