Special Collection for Hurricane Harvey Relief

Horizontal Rule
Diocese of Juneau

The Diocese of Juneau, in solidarity with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) will be taking up a special collection the weekend of September 2-3 or 9-10 (please contact your parish office for dates at your parish) to support the humanitarian, pastoral and Church reconstruction needs arising from hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. The funds collected in this one-time special appeal for Hurricane Harvey Relief will be used to support the efforts of Catholic Charities USA, the official domestic relief agency of the U.S. Catholic Church, as they and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for necessities such as water, food, shelter, and medical care. These relief funds will also assist the USCCB to provide funds for pastoral and reconstructive aid to parishes impacted by Hurricane Harvey, like St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church in Spring, Texas.
