Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast this weekend. The powerful winds and considerable rainfall from this storm are impacting many lives and homes throughout the region.
The southern counties of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston have already suffered substantial property damage and losses. Numerous homes in these communities are currently without power. Several forecasts anticipate additional storm damage and flooding in the coming days, along with high winds and tornado activity.
Please join me and pray for all of those affected by the storm and in need of assistance during this natural disaster. In addition, I ask the faithful to also keep the emergency response personnel and volunteers in your prayers. For those residing in our Archdiocese, in Texas and along the Gulf Coast, be safe and may God have mercy on those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
