We may at times want to escape this world but whenever we come to Eucharist
the concerns of the world are keenly present and enter into our prayer and our reflection on Sacred Scripture. It is near impossible not to be mindful of the circumstance of so many in deprivation after the path of two destructive hurricanes.
Parishioners have relatives and friends whose homes and livelihood have been battered.
Snowbirds are worried about their own winter residences. I have not had any contact with friends on Anguilla, British Virgin Islands.
Bishop Malone and the Conference of Bishops are coordinating a national appeal to offer hurricane relief through Catholic Charities U.S.A. The agencies of Catholic Charities are already on the ground assisting. You can help too by making donations. Indicate on the memo line of the check/designate on the envelope: Hurricane Relief. Checks can be made out to Annunciation. All contributions will be forwarded through our
Chancery to support Catholic Charities in areas impacted by the two storms.
Solidarity and compassion are hallmarks of the Body of Christ.
We are not islands unto ourselves.
