As you are aware, our neighbors to the east are in need of our help. While accurate damage assessments are still forthcoming, we do know that this is a tragedy of the great proportion that requires an urgent response.
In solidarity with our brothers and sisters affected by this disaster, we will be taking up a second collection at all Masses this weekend. Please make checks out to the parish and clearly mark them for Superstorm Relief.
We also ask for your prayers for the victims of this disaster. The Diocese of Winona, working with the dioceses of the east and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, will continue to research further avenues of assistance for those displaced by this tragedy.
