Through Catholic Charities and other ministries, dioceses throughout Texas are providing basic humanitarian and pastoral support to thousands of Texans affected by Hurricane Harvey. The Texas bishops are coordinating efforts with Catholic Charities USA and local civic authorities. For information on how to help, visit https://txcatholic.org/harvey/. In addition, the U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops is working closely with affected local dioceses, Catholic Charities and St. Vincent de Paul, along with other relief organizations, to assess the needs on the ground. Conference president Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo urged “all people of goodwill to closely monitor future calls for assistance for victims and survivors in the days ahead.”
