Hurricane Relief Collections
Our parish is very charitable. Over the past month, Magdalen Catholic School and the parish took up special collections to assist those who have been devastated by Hurricane Harvey in southern Texas. We collected $2,734 in the gathering space after all the Masses on Labor Day weekend, and the Magdalen Catholic School collected more than $2,200. A check for $5,000 from Charity Board funds will therefore be issued to Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, which is the Roman Catholic Church’s primary relief agency for this disaster.
Our donations will efficiently provide food, clothing, shelter and a network of support services to those dealing with the aftermath of this disaster from all walks of life and religious backgrounds. Thank you, parishioners, for your generosity in helping to alleviate the suffering of so many affected by the Hurricane.
