‘They are flat on their bach...we must help them get on their feet so that recovery can begin/
-Archbishop Joseph A. Fiorenza, Chair of the USCCB Hurricane Recovery Task Force
Collection for last year’s hurricane victims to be taken up Aug. 26 & 27
Dear Friends in Christ,
It became clear to all of us attending the June
meeting of Bishops in Los Angeles that the catastrophic
devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita are
ongoing, and that needs for recovery in the effected
areas remain staggering and extremely urgent. There-
fore, the bishops unanimously approved a second
national collection for the Archdiocese of New Orleans
and the Diocese of Biloxi. This nationwide collection
will be taken up on the weekend of August 26 and 27
to aid these two dioceses in meeting the Church’s
recovery and with their rebuilding needs.
I call upon the generosity of the faithful in our own
Diocese of Corpus Christi to help our coastal brothers
and sisters in the Archdiocese of New Orleans and the
Diocese of Biloxi with this most urgent struggle to
rebuild and recover their hope and their lives.
Thank you for all your generous acts of Christian
charity. Together let us ask the Lord to bless the
struggling people of this great region.
May the Lord bless and keep you.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
— Bishop Edmond Carmody
