Monsignor’s Message – Catholics Care Houston

Posted on Nov 15, 2017 in Monsignor's Message, Msgr. Kieran Harrington

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

A small group of our brothers and sisters spent last week in Houston assisting those ravaged by the effects of Hurricane Harvey. They ripped out moldy drywall and disposed of the former treasures destroyed and waterlogged in people’s homes. Most importantly, they are a sign of our solidarity with those who grapple with the devastation of mother nature. We all were horrified by the images that we see from Texas and parts of Florida, Saint Martin, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and everywhere else affected by the recent hurricanes. This small band of volunteers is a reminder that those suffering are not forgotten. We cannot fix all the problems of the world but we must do what we can do to make the world a better place. Our small group of Catholics Care will also be organizing a trip to Puerto Rico to assist those who lost so much. We invite you to join us on this next trip that will be announced in the coming weeks. Pray for our volunteers or make a donation to assist in the recovery efforts. We ought not celebrate Thanksgiving one day a year. Each time we assist those who are in distress we express our gratitude to Almighty God for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
