Emergency Collection for Hurricane Victims: In recent days, all of us have been following the historic flooding in southeast Texas. Hurricane Harvey has created an unprecedented and catastrophic weather event.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the families that have lost loved ones and to all who have lost homes or businesses, along with their sense of peace and normalcy. We also pray for the brave first responders whose efforts are profound.
All parishes of the Salina Diocese will participate in a National Collection for hurricane victims on the weekend of September 9-10. The funds collected will be used both to support the humanitarian and recovery efforts of Catholic Charities USA and to provide pastoral and rebuilding support to impacted dioceses through the USCCB.
I am very sincerely grateful for your generosity and support of our suffering brothers and sisters in Christ.
+ Bishop Edward J. Weisenburger
