Catholic Charities is consistently among the most efficient charities in our nation. As expected, they are coordinating various actions to assist the thousands who have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
Many people think only of the short-term needs, food, water, medicine, clothing & shelter. In addition to those immediate needs, Catholic Charities will also assist people with re-building housing, finding employment and re-establishing their lives.
You can help with the effort in three ways:
- Most Catholic parishes will be having a special collection this Sunday — simply bring a check with you to Mass
- Donate directly to Catholic Charities USA online securely here
- Send a donation by snail-mail to:

Thank you for your generosity in helping those who have been hurt so deeply by this ravenous storm. It’s important to remember that Americans are by far the most generous people in the world — we give more to charity, both in terms of monies & volunteerism.
This is a moment for us to demonstrate our love for one another, even in the midst of so much devastation. God bless you all!
