Statement of Bishop Joe S. Vásquez and Auxiliary Bishop Daniel E. Garcia of Austin Concerning the Catastrophic Effects of Hurricane Harvey

Together with our brother bishops, we urge all people of good will to be united with those suffering as a result of the catastrophic damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. We are deeply concerned about the parishes, communities and people that have been and will continue to be impacted by the storm.  We urge all people to continue to follow the safety directives of the local emergency management officials. Even as the hurricane has been downgraded, some victims will feel the long-term effects of the system for years to come.

We encourage the faithful of the Diocese of Austin to be spiritually united with the communities affected through prayer and support. Because we believe that “God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress” (Psalm 46:1), our neighbors require our resolve to help them in their time of need. Considering the unprecedented flooding and the disheartening circumstances in which our brothers and sisters find themselves, we are reminded that Jesus requires us to help our neighbors out of mercy and love (cf Luke 10:29-37).

Catholic Charities of Central Texas is coordinating our diocesan relief efforts. We encourage you to visit www.ccctx.org for more information on how to offer help and to provide financial assistance for the victims of the storm.

Comunicado del Obispo José S. Vásquez y el Obispo Auxiliar Daniel E. Garcia de Austin Respecto a los Efectos Catastróficos del Huracán Harvey

Junto con nuestros hermanos obispos, urgimos a todas las personas de buena voluntad a que se unan con aquellos que sufren como resultado del daño catastrófico causado por el Huracán Harvey. Estamos profundamente consternados por las parroquias, comunidades y personas que han sido y continuarán siendo impactadas por la tormenta. Invitamos a toda la gente a que continúe siguiendo las directrices de seguridad de los oficiales del manejo de emergencias locales. Aún cuando el huracán ha bajado de nivel, algunas víctimas sufrirán los efectos a largo plazo del sistema de la tormenta durante los años venideros.

Invitamos a los fieles de la Diócesis de Austin a estar unidos espiritualmente con las comunidades afectadas  a través de la oración y el apoyo. Por que creemos que “Dios es nuestro amparo y fortaleza, nuestro pronto auxilio en las tribulaciones” (Salmo 46:1), nuestro prójimo necesita nuestra decisión de ayudarlo en su momento de necesidad. Considerando la inundación sin precedentes y las desesperadas circunstancias en las cuales nuestros hermanos y hermanas se encuentran a si mismos, se nos recuerda que Jesús nos pide ayudar a nuestro prójimo por misericordia y amor (cf Lucas 10:29-37).

Caridades Católicas del Centro de Texas se encuentra coordinando nuestros esfuerzos diocesanos de alivio. Le invitamos a que visite www.ccctx.org para obtener más información sobre cómo puede usted ofrecer ayuda y proveer asistencia financiera para las víctimas de la tormenta.
