Hurricane Harvey Special Collection

Updated: Jan 14, 2020

Over the past several days, all of us have been following the historic flooding in southeast Texas. Hurricane Harvey is a catastrophic weather event of enormous proportions. Over twelve million people thus far have been affected. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has requested that each diocese participates in an emergency collection to assist the victims of Hurricane Harvey. This collection will occur in the Diocese of Scranton during the weekend of September 9th and 10th. This emergency collection will be used both to support the humanitarian and recovery efforts of Catholic Charities USA and to provide pastoral and rebuilding support to impacted dioceses through the USCCB. Catholic Charities USA is the official domestic relief agency of the US Catholic Church.

You may also donate to Catholic Charities USA at any time by visiting their website. Your financial sacrifice will provide comfort and hope to those most impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
