Brigidine Sisters around the world join with our community in Texas, US in praying for the countless victims of a series of deadly tornadoes that recently struck at least six US states, killing scores of people and leaving a trail of destruction and devastation.
Bishop William Medley of Owensboro, whose diocese was particularly hard hit, has called for all in the Catholic community to unite in prayer for all who are suffering in the aftermath of this disaster.
He said in a statement issued Saturday that in light of the “catastrophic devastation” throughout the diocese, he was requesting each parish to take up a special collection to assist victims. He noted that the diocese, through its Catholic Charities office, is ready to offer “immediate help and services for those who are displaced or who have immediate need of emergency financial aid.”
We pray that all who have been impacted by these tornadoes will find peace, comfort, and hope in their faith in God’s protection and endless love.
May the support of others restore them in life and sustain them in this trying time.
