Our hearts and prayers are with Catholic schools and all those affected by Hurricane Harvey. In keeping with our mission to serve others, we have been in touch with diocesan leaders in the affected storm areas to determine their needs. In addition, we have heard from others asking how they can help.
The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) is answering this question by launching a campaign asking every Catholic school family around the country to contribute at least $1 per student to help Catholic schools impacted by the storm to rebuild, reopen and re-enroll students. “Student to Student: A Catholic School Response to Hurricane Harvey” is a powerful opportunity to engage students in living the Gospel message of compassionate service and generosity to others. Our students and families donated $1260.00 yesterday! Great job Knights!!
NCEA will distribute 100% of the funds collected to dioceses in the affected areas for their Catholic schools in vital need of support due to the impact of Hurricane Harvey.
