How Can I Help? Disasters: A Catholic Response

A Catholic response

The authentically Catholic response to disaster, whether it happens to your hometown or across the globe, is to help.

We also have many questions: How to help others? How could God allow this? How to talk to children about what's happened? What can you do as an individual, a family, a parish? Where can we go for more information? Download this pamphlet now.

Prayer of St. Augustine
Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight,
and give your angels and saints charge over those who sleep.
Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest your weary ones.
Bless your dying ones.
Soothe your suffering ones.
Pity your afflicted ones.
Shield your joyous ones,
and all for your love's sake.
Amen. SaveSave
