Diocese to Help Hurricane Harvey Flood Victims

The Diocese of Palm Beach is joining with all other dioceses around the country to assist the residents in Texas and Louisiana, both spiritually and financially, who are dealing with the recent severe flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. Catholic Charities in the affected regions as well as Catholic Charities USA have been on the scene providing disaster assistance to the thousands of people who have lost or evacuated their homes. On the weekends of September 16 & 17 or the September 23 & 24, and at your pastor’s discretion, diocesan parishes will conduct a special collection to support the work of Catholic Charities that are in the path of the storm. Checks should be written payable to your parish and in the memo section write “Hurricane Harvey Fund.” Catholic Charities will be providing short-term and long-term recovery assistance to the communities and parishes there. Your financial generosity as well as your ongoing prayers for the people of Texas and Louisiana are so very much needed and appreciated.
