Second Collection for Disaster Relief on Sept. 12-13

SECOND COLLECTION this weekend: In conjunction with the USCCB, Bishop Walkowiak has asked that a special second collection for the humanitarian, long-term recovery, and Church needs arising from the increasing number of natural disasters in the United States be taken up this weekend. Funds collected will become part of the Bishops Emergency Disaster Relief Fund and will be used to support the work of Catholic Charities USA and/or Catholic Relief Services as they and their local agencies respond to immediate emergency needs through the provision of water, food, shelter and medical care and aid in long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts. Please continue to pray for those who’ve lost loved ones, homes, businesses because of damage caused by Hurricane Laura and the CA wildfires.
