Southeast Texas has been devastated by Hurricane Harvey, the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States in twelve years. Though now downgraded to a tropical storm, Harvey continues to hover over Texas and drop record-setting amounts of rain. Widespread flooding is occurring throughout the region, and many thousands of people have been displaced.

My own family in Houston is safe, but many others are not. Please consider making a donation to a reputable disaster relief charity like Catholic Charities USA or the American Red Cross. Your donation will be used to help provide for the safety and well-being of the victims of this disaster.
