Hurricanes Harvey and Irma: How We Can Help

As you have seen in media reports, while residents in Texas are only beginning their recovery effort from Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma has caused considerable damage throughout Florida. Once again, I ask all in the Diocese of Arlington to join me in prayer for those struggling with the effects of this destructive weather. Pray that victims of these storms will feel the presence of Christ’s peace in the midst of turmoil and unrest.

Everyone is welcome!
