Bishop Barbarito Statements


Bishop Barbarito’s message on the earthquakes in Turkey and Syrian and link for how to support those affected

We join prayer for all those affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria.  The loss is tremendous in regard to life, inflicted injuries and affected families.  The full extent of this disaster is still unknown.  Our prayers join us in union with all those so tragically affected.  In the words of Pope Francis: “Let us pray that these brothers and sisters of ours may move forward in the face of this tragedy and let us ask our Lady to protect them.”

In addition to our prayers, direct financial assistance can be offered in the continuing aftermath of the earthquakes through Catholic Relief Services.  Please click here.
