Harvey Relief Efforts

I want to thank our church community for being so responsive and generous in assisting our brothers and sisters affected by Hurricane Harvey. The need has been great, and I am very proud of the love our community has shown these past weeks. Together we raised $2,744.00, all of which was sent to Catholic Charities for Harvey Relief. The supply drive was very successful as well. What is present in the church now is roughly half of what was collected. The other half was sent down last week to our brothers and sisters at Crossbridge Church in Houston, TX who have done great work in immediately responding to the needs of the community in their rebuilding efforts. The other supplies will be sent out by the end of this week.
