The Diocese of Charleston has plans to take up a special collection to help those who have fell victim to Hurricane Harvey.
Bishop Robert E. Guglielmone stated “After suffering through floods and hurricanes, South Carolina residents are familiar with the misery and distress that is occurring in Texas right now. So many people helped us when we were suffering; it is now our turn to assist our brothers and sisters in Texas.”
“Our hearts go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Bishop Guglielmone. “Please pray for those who died in the storm, those who lost their homes and businesses, and for the first responders and volunteers in the area who are working tireless to assist those in need.”
According to officials, the money will be sent to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops for distribution to Catholic Charities USA and the Diocese of Galveston-Houston.
