As our thoughts and prayers go out to our brothers and sisters in Texas, we are called to concrete acts of corporal mercy – to feed the hungry and clothe the naked. If you are looking for a way to provide help, our family of four parishes will take a second collection on September 9-10 to support victims of the hurricane.
Please make checks payable to Old St. Mary Parish, with “Hurricane Relief” on the memo line.
The money from our family of four parishes will go to support Catholic Charities and their work, as they will be coordinating with a variety of relief agencies to provide the most effective aid possible in this tragic situation. If you’d like to donate directly to them, their link for online donations is https://catholiccharitiesusa.org/. The address to contact them by mail or phone is:
Catholic Charities, USA
2050 Ballenger Ave Suite 400
Alexandria, VA 22314
Your prayers and contributions are needed by our sisters and brothers affected by this natural disaster.
