  • How to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey

    In addition to their prayers, all Catholics in the 11-county Diocese of Rockford here in Northern Illinois are being asked to financially give what they can to help relief efforts following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Louisiana 

    Bishop David Malloy said in a letter sent Tuesday, Aug. 29 to all 105 parishes today that “Hurricane Harvey has created an unprecedented and catastrophic weather event of immense proportions with extreme damage and further anticipated suffering.” Because of that, Bishop Malloy requested every parish to take up a second collection at all Masses celebrated on September 2 and 3, 2017. 

    Money collected at the Masses will be used both to support the humanitarian and recovery efforts of Catholic Charities USA, and, to provide pastoral and rebuilding support to all impacted dioceses through the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

    If you are unable to attend Mass in the diocese this holiday weekend, your contribution can be sent to:

    Hurricane Harvey Relief
    Diocese of Rockford
    P.O. Box 7044
    Rockford, Illinois 61125
