How fortunate were our neighbors in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas that Hurricane Dorian did not hit them with full force.  Yes, damage was done but a direct hit from a high category hurricane would have been catastrophic.  The loss of life could have been high and property damage run into the billions of dollars.  We were all very fortunate to have escaped a bullet.
Very sadly our neighbors in the Bahamas were not so fortunate.  Too many lives were lost and the damage to property was tremendous.  Whenever we see such devastation, we want to reach out and help those who have been so adversely affected.  I wanted to let you know several ways you can do this.  It is easy, quick and your contribution to these good organizations will go to help those in need.
Three organizations come to mind to assist those suffering in the Bahamas.  The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the Knights of Columbus and Catholic Relief Services are three reliable organizations that will ensure your donation goes to help those in need.  Go to the national website of each of these groups.  Look for an icon to do with disaster relief and go from there.  You can make a secure online donation that will help those whose lives are forever changed.  Do it today.  Reach out and be an angel to a sister or brother in need.
I also want to remind you of the online giving program here at St. Ann.  It is easy and convenient to do.  No more wasting checks or looking for envelopes.  You can almost set it and forget it, at least for a while.  For information, go to the St. Ann website and find the icon for online giving.  You are now off and running!
