As catastrophic flooding continues to affect the Gulf Coast region of our country, Bishop Mark is asking the faithful to pray for the victims of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey and offer financial support.  The Bishop has asked the clergy of the Diocese to take up a special collection at every parish, church and chapel in Altoona-Johnstown as soon as possible   Second collections will be taken next weekend at all of our Masses.  All monies collected will go to Catholic Charities USA, which is already assisting in the areas affected by the storm.  Bishop Mark urges the faithful to be as generous as possible.  There are no special envelopes for this collection, however if you would like your donations recorded, please use a plain envelope with your name and envelope number on it.  Also, last weekend’s tithing check was donated to the American Red Cross to help these victims.
