Support Victims of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and Southeastern United States

Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, is calling for an emergency collection to be taken up for the extraordinary needs that resulted from Hurricane Irma. Devastation has occurred in significant parts off the Caribbean and the southeastern United States

The funds will be used in the affected areas to support humanitarian needs and provide assistance with long-term efforts to restore communities after widespread destruction. Support will also be offered for the pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church in the United States and the Caribbean.

In his communication, Cardinal DiNardo said, "I am aware that this call comes on the heels of the emergency collection for Hurricane Harvey. That storm, which hit Texas and Louisiana and held on for days before moving inland, caused catastrophic damage and compelled us to respond. Likewise, Hurricane Irma has been devastating, and our brothers and sisters in the Caribbean, especially the Diocese of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, and the southern U.S. need our help."

"Heartfelt thanks are extended to all who contribute as we reach out to our brothers and sisters in responding to both their immediate and long-term needs," said Bishop Pates. "Along with our monetary contributions all in our diocesan community offer an assurance of ongoing prayer and solidarity as those affected undertake the long, challenging road to recovery."
