Hurricane Relief Efforts
The Jesuit brothers and priests have a long history in the South going back several centuries. Along with many families both rich and poor, our ministries and apostolates in New Orleans have suffered greatly from Hurricane Katrina and were challenged again by Hurricane Rita. Our ministries outside the New Orleans region have been called upon to receive and care for many evacuees. They too have shouldered the burden.
Reflections and video to aid your prayer: Contemplating Katrina
St. Ignatius told his Jesuit followers that they must be able to beg in order to ensure that the Gospel light is shown in even the darkest times. So we turn to you today and beg your assistance during these challenging times for the New Orleans Province. Two funds have been established to bring relief in the aftermath of these terrible storms.
This fund will support the storm-related needs of the New Orleans Province and its apostolates e.g., the rebuilding of Immaculate Conception Rectory, the Province offices, and Jesuit High New Orleans
