Our hearts go out to those affected by Hurricane Harvey, the storms, and flooding in Texas. We pray for all those who have lost their homes or suffered damage. We also pray for the safety of those responding with rescue and relief efforts. May the coming days witness to God’s unfailing promise to be with us as people work to restore their lives.

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth Disaster Relief Team plans to travel to Texas in late Fall to help with the rebuilding efforts. Donations may be given below to support this SCN Disaster Relief effort.

Or, donate to local Catholic Charities organizations: Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and Catholic Charities of Corpus Christi.
