The National Conference of Catholic Bishops has called for parishes to take up a special collection for the National Catholic Charities of the USCCB for the flood relief of families and properties damaged in Hurricane Harvey. On September 9th and 10 Trinity Parish replaced its monthly collection for evangelization and catechesis with a special collection for National Catholic Charities Disaster Relief.
With the continuing need for help for victims of multiple hurricanes in many locations, donations are still being encouraged. Call 1-800-919-9338 to donate by phone or click the link below for the Catholic Charities USA disaster relief online donation page.
Donations can also be made to Catholic Charities USA via SMS text: Text CCUSADISASTER to 71777
