In solidarity with those impacted by current hurricanes and natural disasters across our nation, we ask our brothers and sisters of all faith traditions to support the efforts of catholiccharitiesusa.org  as they provide help and create hope for those dealing with this catastrophic disaster. We hold those experiencing recent  devastation close to our hearts and in our prayers.
