Stand with those impacted by Hurricane Harvey

Posted on: August 29, 2017 10:00 am

Hurricane Harvey brought devastation to our brothers and sisters in Texas and is set to bring massive rainfall to Louisiana today. We pray for all those who have been displaced, who are scared, who are uncertain about what comes next, and who will face the impact of the storm well beyond this week. We pray for the rescuers and the helpers, including Sr. Pamela Marie Buganski, a Toledo SND.

Sr. Pam shared this message from San Antonio yesterday:
"I am on my way to the Travis Park Methodist Church who has been sheltering about 100 homeless individuals and immigrants. This is my third night of night shift at the shelter. I anticipate that only a few families remain. Not sure where I will be tomorrow, but I am grateful to be here and serving in any way that I can. Wonderful people here! Please keep all those impacted by Harvey in your prayers."

Some people have asked how they can help. The Covington Province will be donating to the Catholic Charities USA Hurricane Harvey Response. If you'd like to contribute to these relief efforts, please visit
