Catholic Charities USA, the official domestic relief agency of the Catholic Church, is providing disaster response and disaster recovery services to individuals and families dealing with the devastation of Hurricane Harvey and the subsequent flooding. Thousands of victims have been assisted with even the most basic necessities. In lieu of a special collection at Mass this weekend, St. Raphael has contributed $2,000 to support the relief efforts of Catholic Charities USA. If you would like to make an additional donation, please drop your check in the collection basket and clearly mark HARVEY RELIEF in the memo section. If you have any questions, please contact Sherry Hiltbrunner at 865-5732. Please continue to pray for the victims of the hurricane and floods.
