Hurricane Harvey Relief—Help Hurricane Victims

"So great is the love in the Heart of Christ living in his disciples, we cannot just stand by and watch while people suffer."

—Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ in the September 4, 2018 edition of The Catholic Voice

The Catholic bishops of the USA are oranizing a special collection in all the churches to be taken up on one of the weekends in September, at the discresion of the pastor. The funds collected will be distributed through Catholic Charities USA to help those in affected areas. 


Give in your parish or send directly to the Chancery.

Make checks payable to the Roman Catholic Bishop of Oakland, and in the memo field, write "for Hurricane Harvey relief."

If sending directly to the diocese, mail to:
Diocese of Oakland Accounting Department

If you use this method, note that you will receive a MobileCause.com link, which will allow you to make a donation online for an amount of your choosing.
