Disaster Relief Response
If you would like to express your solidarity with and support for those affected by natural disasters, prayers and monetary donations are the best way to ensure people will get what they need.
When a natural disaster occurs in the United States and its territories, checks or electronic donations may be directed to Catholic Charities USA, which assures us that 100% of donations go to the local organizations providing assistance. They and their member agencies respond to immediate emergency needs for such necessities as water, food, shelter and medical care, as well as to the long-term need to rebuild and recover after widespread destruction. They also assist the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops with pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church. Their address information follows:
