It’s hard to pinpoint a one-day anniversary for the historic flooding that Harvey caused. Many people are only now returning home and more remain displaced. As a
church our ministry in our communities continues.
Through grants from Episcopal Relief & Development and the diocesan Quin Foundation, your diocesan Hurricane Recovery team is reaching out to assist our most vulnerable sisters and brothers for whom conventional disaster recovery mechanisms are not effective.
Stay tuned for opportunities to assist in the long journey of Harvey recovery from near and from afar; through mission trips and through sponsorships. Together let us commit to returning many more families home in time for the 2018 holidays. The recovery timeline is long. “Let us not grow weary in doing good.”
It’s really cool to see all of these teenagers coming together and fill the needs of the most vulnerable.
