Josephite parishes and schools were hard hit by Hurricane Ida. Many were damaged by wind and rain and flooding. Some still haven’t had power restored. Those who were evacuated are just now returning to the devastation.

Josephites minister in African American communities in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Virginia and Maryland. These areas were especially hard hit by Hurricane Ida.

In many locations, the Josephite parish is the center of community events and activities. As people begin to rebuild their lives after the devastating hurricane, our churches are aiding parishioners, many of whom have had their homes damaged and destroyed.

As the recovery continues, Josephite parishes need your financial assistance.

Please consider making a special donation to help get Josephite parishes operational.

In times of need, we call on the patronage of St. Joseph to give us strength, guidance and encouragement. We also need you!

Thank you for your prayers and support.

Bishop John H. Ricard

Superior General
