Most Rev. Mark E. Brennan joins Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), and bishops across the country asking the faithful to support a special collection to help with the recovery of Hurricane Ida. The collection in parishes and missions in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston will be held at Masses the weekend of October 2-3.

Donations will go to the Bishops Emergency Disaster Fund to assist with the humanitarian, long-term recovery, and significant needs stemming from Hurricane Ida which devastated several states, specifically the pastoral and reconstruction needs of the Church, as well as the efforts of Catholic Charities USA and/or Catholic Relief Services.

Checks are to be made payable to your respective parish/mission and on the memo line indicate Hurricane Ida Relief.  The parish/mission will then send one check for all contributions for this collection to the DWC Finance Department.
