Seeing as how it’s almost November, most people probably aren’t thinking about hurricanes or those who have suffered from them this year. But as the Christmas season grows near, we shouldn’t forget those who have faced these natural disasters this year and lost much of what they own, whose homes and churches and cities have been greatly damaged by rain and wind and storms. The Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux in Louisiana, which has been great to us in the past, was hit hard this year by hurricanes Gustav and Ike, and they could definitely use your help even now. If you can spare some money, they would appreciate whatever donations you can give.
Visit their website to donate, and to see more photos of the damage their city is trying to repair. It’s important to help those we can help, whenever we can, even in times when the economy isn’t so good. If we can’t help each other out, who will help us when we find that we need it?
