COVID Support



How You Can Help:


We are experiencing an unprecedented crisis with this Coronavirus pandemic. Because of widespread layoffs and related health issues, we are anticipating a great surge in requests for food, clothing, housing, transportation and other basics. To meet this urgent need here in our diocese, we are asking for your help in three ways:

First, pray for Our Lady’s protection and intercession in this great time of need.

Second, using recommended safety protocols, assist your neighbors, especially the elderly and most vulnerable.

Third, if possible, please make a financial contribution to our efforts to support those in great need in our diocese. Your donations are needed more than ever to aid those in our local area. You may also qualify for tax incentives.

Because of our donors, from March through July 2020, we have been able to help 1,810 individuals effected by COVID pay their bills.
