hurricane relief

By: Bishop Gregory J. Hartmayer, OFM Conv.

Hurricane Dorian is a tragic reminder of the suffering that can be caused by natural disasters. Whether these catastrophes occur in slow motion as Dorian has or with little or no warning at any hour of the day or night, people of faith naturally want to offer assistance.

Assistance is on the way for residents of the Diocese of Savannah still recovering from the effects of Hurricane Michael, thanks to a financial gift of $250,000 from Catholic Charities USA.  


Though the 155 mph Category 4 storm, which made landfall Oct. 10 near Mexico Beach, Florida, exited Georgia the next day as a weakened tropical storm, many residents of South Georgia and beyond could not return to their normal routines for days, in some cases a week afterward. Others are still struggling.

Sister Patricia Brown, SSMN, LCSW, director of Catholic Charities of South Georgia, reports $2,200 was distributed locally in the Diocese of Savannah for hurricane relief. Responding to requests for aid to parishioners hit hard by Hurricane Irma, Catholic Charities of South Georgia provided $1,200 dollars, donated by Our Lady of Grace Church, North Dakota, to Our Lady Star of the Sea Church, St. Mary's. An additional $1,000 from the O'Neill Fund went to Saint Francis Xavier Church, Brunswick.
