Special Collection for Hurricane Harvey Relief

Parishes in the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh will take up a special collection on the weekend of September 16-17 to assist the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The effort is part of a nationwide collection sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The funds will support relief and reconstruction efforts that benefit everyone harmed by the hurricane as well as Catholic churches that were damaged or are providing ministry in the flood zone. Donations will go to Catholic Charities USA to provide shelter, clean water, food and medical care, and to underwrite long term recovery and rebuilding. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops will also distribute some funds to affected parishes for pastoral ministry and reconstruction.
