Hurricane Disaster Relief

Our thoughts and prayers have been with the victims of hurricane Katrina during these past days. Certainly, the devastation is immense and the extent of the damage is only beginning to be known. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has announced a collection to support those in affected areas. Read more about the effort at the USCCB site here, or visit Catholic Charities. Here's the address to send money now, or donate online:
2005 Hurricane Relief Fund
Catholic Charities USA
PO Box 25168
Alexandria, VA 22313-9788

We at St. John Neumann will be using the yellow missionary envelopes this week to collect money for this fund; please make your checks out to the parish, and we will send one check from the whole parish.

Also, please continue to pray for the people still stranded and homeless, and for all the rebuilding efforts.
