Recently, Hurricane Ida caused major damage across several states when it made landfall in the Gulf Coast and moved inland as a tropical storm. As a result, lives have been lost and many Church properties, along with homes and businesses, have been severely damaged or destroyed. Our partners at Catholic Charities USA, along with their local agencies, are hard at work providing humanitarian relief and will be with communities over their extended recovery.
We ask you to prayerfully consider donating to this special collection. The funds collected will be part of the Bishops Emergency Disaster Fund to support the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church as well as the efforts of Catholic Relief Services and/or Catholic Charities USA, the official relief agencies of the U.S. Catholic Church, as they and their local agencies respond to immediate emergency needs and aid in long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts for those impacted by Hurricane Ida. Funds will be used in response to the hurricane and any other disasters that occur and will be distributed where they are most needed.
Thank you for your gift, and we ask you to keep the people impacted by Hurricane Ida in your prayers.
