The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland and dioceses across the country have been asked by the leadership of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to have an emergency collection to assist victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Hurricane Harvey has created an unprecedented and catastrophic weather event of immense proportions. The emergency collection will be used both to support the humanitarian and recovery efforts of Catholic Charities USA and to provide
pastoral and rebuilding support to impacted dioceses through the USCCB.

In support of this major relief effort, this special collection will take place next weekend, September 9th & 10th.

All checks from parishioners should be made payable to St. Clement Parish with the memo marked Emergency Collection
for Hurricane Harvey.
