As we pray for those afflicted by natural disasters in the Carolinas and southeastern United States, our bishop, Most Rev. John F. Doerfler, asks that all parishes and missions in the diocese take up a special collection during the weekend of October 13th-14th, 2018. This collection will assist Catholic Charities USA and Catholic Relief Services in providing both emergency assistance and long-term recovery support for those affected by the Hurricane Florence and any other natural disasters that occur this year. We are called to take action to strengthen Catholic channels of grace and solidarity in these vulnerable regions. Please keep all affected communities in your thoughts and prayers.
