The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland and dioceses across the country once again have been asked by leadership of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to have a voluntary special collection on behalf of people impacted by a hurricane. We are being asked to help the people who have been impacted by Hurricane Ida which made landfall in the Gulf Coast and moved inland as a tropical storm, causing damage across several states. As a result, lives have been lost and many Church properties, along with homes and businesses, have been severely damaged or destroyed. Please keep the people who have been hurt in your prayers.
If you would like to make a financial donation to assist them, place your donation in an envelope marked “IDA RELIEF” next weekend, September 25 & 26, and place it in the collection basket along with your donation to the parish. If you are writing a check, make the check payable to Saint John Vianney Parish and mark on the memo, Ida Relief. Thanks again for your generosity.
