While we continue to pray for those affected by Hurricane Harvey, we also want to do our part to help support the relief efforts. On Sunday, we invite those who attend a service in person to give generously. The Cathedral will donate an amount equal to that collected in the offerings to help hurricane relief and rehabilitation.

For those who are not with us in person, you can also help by making an online donation to Episcopal Relief and Development. Your gift will help provide critical necessities to communities recovering from this devastating storm.

You can also help the Cathedral in their relief effort by purchasing a blanket for donation to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The Cathedral Store will be sending donated blankets to Hurricane Harvey victims that have been affected by the historic floods in Houston and surrounding areas. Donation can be made both in-store and online. The Cathedral will ship blankets ordered directly to aid Hurricane victims.

Most merciful God, look with pity upon all those who have been bereft by the loss of loved ones, injured, left homeless, in shock, or affected in any way in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Pour out your Spirit to strengthen first responders as they reach out to those in need as rain and flooding continue in the coming days. All this we ask though Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
