Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Many cities in Texas have been affected by Hurricane Harvey, some of those devastated. The rebuilding will be complicated and take a very long time.
Many have expressed a desire to offer prayerful support and a gift for the people as they clean up and start rebuilding. If you wish to send a financial gift, you may do so through your parish or send your gift to the Archdiocese of New Orleans, 7887 Walmsley Ave., New Orleans, LA 70125. These gifts will go directly to those most in need.
Most importantly, please pray daily for those who have died and those who have lost homes and property. May God give them hope and perseverance in this time of need. We can be a sign of God’s compassion through prayer and charity. Having been through such experiences, we know the pain they experience.
As we remember Katrina, we remain grateful for the people of Texas who came to our aid. May we do the same for them.
Wishing you God’s blessings, I am
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend Gregory M. Aymond
Archbishop of New Orleans
