Dear Community of St. Bernard,
In recent weeks many people in other states and countries have been devastated and uprooted by natural disasters, such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and Maria. We see in the news of the hundreds of lives lost by an earthquake in Mexico.
I thank you for your generous responses to our Bishop’s requests for financial assistance to these disaster areas to help Catholic Charities Relief Services respond to the extraordinary number of people in distress this year.
Some of my own friends have been devastated by the destruction of their home by fire recently (see on our website: The Teague Family). How important is our faith at times like these. You appreciate all the more the people and blessings in your life. And you can be amazed at the charitable response of fellow Christians. God is so good.
Peace and Good,
