Hurricane Irma - Relief Efforts

Dear Parishioners,
 
Our prayers continue to be with your family as we, together, have come through Hurricane Irma. Throughout the past week we have heard from our brothers and sisters in Venice as well as many out of state. Every connection echoed the same call to action, “I’m a member of Epiphany”, “I’m praying”, “Who can I help”. Praise God.
 
As members of Epiphany, we know the strength of family, we know the strength of community, and we know without question the strength of Catholic Faith. In the devastation that has followed this storm, our church has demonstrated the very words of our Mission Statement of "Being the Heart and Hands of Christ."
 
Now that the storms have passed, many of our parishioners and many in our community are still without needed resources. It is our time to come together as His Stewards providing help and continued prayers.
 
Across the Diocese:
  • To aid the people across the region, Bishop Dewane has directed Catholic Charities, Diocese of Venice Inc., to set up relief centers in communities of greatest impact. The disaster response sites are in Arcadia, Clewiston, Moore Haven, Fort Myers, Immokalee, Bonita Springs, Wauchula and Naples. For a list of the disaster response locations and contact information, click here
At home with Epiphany:
  • Working together, Epiphany Cathedral Parish and School are coordinating efforts to support Catholic Charities in Immokalee. If you would like to donate or volunteer, click here for more information.
  • For additional resources within our parish, please visit our website at www.epiphanycathedral.org or contact the parish office at 941-484-3505. If you need assistance, please let us know.
Donations:
  • For the faithful wanting to financially support the relief effort, Catholic Charities has a donation page at www.catholiccharitiesdov.org.
Thank you and let us continue to pray together,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the strength You have given me to do Your will. Make me a reflection of You so that I may help those in need and bring them the refuge of your promises. This I pray in Your name. Amen.
