The people of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux have recently suffered immense devastation caused by Hurricane Ida to their property and lives. Bishop Shelton J. Fabre reports that of their 39 parishes, 36 have suffered damage to their church buildings. Additionally, Catholic Charities and other Catholic organizations in that diocese are providing relief efforts to thousands of families, including food, water and shelter. They are in urgent need of assistance.

At the request of Bishop Olson, all parishes in the Diocese of Fort Worth will take up a special collection the weekend of September 25-26 to provide immediate assistance for those affected by Hurricane Ida in the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux. Your gifts will go directly to bring relief to the parishioners of this diocese. On behalf of Bishop Fabre and the priests, religious, and lay leadership of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, thank you for your charitable generosity and expression of solidarity among God’s people.
