On the Tragedy in Oklahoma

May 21, 2013

Along with all of the members of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, I want to express my deep sadness and my condolences to all those brothers and sisters of ours affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. Certainly our prayers are with the victims and their families. Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City has established a Tornado Disaster Relief Fund to provide counseling, emergency assistance and case management to those families who have been displaced by the tornadoes. I urge the faithful of Galveston-Houston to consider making a contribution to assist the victims of this tragedy through the Catholic Charities' website at www.catholiccharitiesok.org.

We will continue to keep them in our prayers, and ask all Catholics of the Archdiocese to pray with us.
