Our hearts go out to our brothers and sisters along the Texas and Louisiana coast who are suffering from the ravages of Hurricane Harvey. We pray for the souls of those who died in the flooding and its aftermath, and for their families who are grieving.
We also hold in prayer those who have lost their homes or suffered damage. Prayers continue for the safety of the first responders, rescuers and all those engaged in relief efforts. As our foundress Saint Angela Merici wrote, “For in these troubled times you will find no other refuge than at the feet of Jesus Christ.” May we seek comfort in God’s presence with us as people struggle to find normalcy again in their lives.
We pledge, as the community of Ursuline Sisters of Louisville, to send a tithing of all of the donations that we receive on Sept. 14 on the Give for Good Louisville Online Donation Day to Catholic Charities to aid in their Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts.
If you wish to donate separately to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, you may mail your check to:
