Relief Fund is Established

Texas is part of our Diocese, recently hit with major flooding after Hurricane Harvey. This past weekend Florida was struck by Hurricane Irma. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people who are seeking to save and rebuild homes and lives after these hurricanes and floods.


Our Church is responding with a fundraising appeal to help during the month of September. His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH has sent a letter: "I am asking every parish and mission of the Archdiocese to appeal to their faithful and hold special collections throughout the month of September so that we can alleviate a little of the pain and suffering the good people of that area are enduring. Immediately after the last Sunday of September, please send your offerings to the Archdiocese and put in the memo of the check 'Hurricane Appeal.' Once we have assessed the needs of our parishes and their faithful who have suffered losses, we will distribute your offerings to them on your behalf." 

The week, His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH sent anther letter appealing for assistance of the victims of the earthquake in Mexico.
