Hurricane Matthew

We hold in prayer all those impacted by the deadly and destructive path of Hurricane Matthew as it moved across Haiti and up the east coast of the United States. And we stand in support of and in solidarity with the first-responders to this disaster, especially those from Catholic Relief Services and Catholic Charities USA.

+ Archbishop Allen Vigneron

Matthew, a category five Atlantic hurricane, made landfall near Les Anglais, Haiti on October 4. Later that same day, the storm struck the coast of Cuba before passing into the Caribbean Sea, tracking for Florida, making landfall there on Friday, October 7.

Hurricane Matthew has so far resulted in hundreds of deaths and has damaged homes, buildings and infrastructure. A great many people, especially in the Caribbean, have been made homeless by the storm.

Your help is needed to aid the victims of this storm and to help rebuild affected communities.

Loyola High School needs a little help…

The collection of new and gently used shirts (blue or white), ties and belts has helped the young men at Loyola High School for the past several years, allowing them to go out into the community in dress attire learning skills for a bright and promising future. Many of these young men have no resources to obtain these items, many go without adequate meals, are responsible for taking care of siblings and are working on their last chance to make something positive of their life.

If you don’t have gently used shirts, belts, ties and would like to donate monetarily you can drop a check/cash off to JoAnn Mouch in the front office.  November 5/6 after all Masses, or the week prior to the front office.

Thank you so much
