About this Fund

The good people of Florida and the Caribbean islands, having faced a Hurricane of their own, Hurricane Maria, are facing the same predicament of devastation and uncertainty and for this reason also need our support.

Once again, the bishops of the United States have called for an emergency collection to be taken up as a relief fund for our brothers and sisters affected by Hurricane Maria.

Bishop Mark has authorized a special emergency collection to take place in parishes throughout the Diocese of El Paso next weekend September 30 & October 1, 2017.   

All funds will be sent to Catholic Charities USA, who will coordinate disbursements of all funds in the state of Florida and the surrounding islands. 

We trust that as one family, we continue to pray for everyone suffering because of these natural disasters. Let us pray that in their loss and pain, they too may experience our prayers, support and generosity as the body of Christ.   

Why Give to Endowment?

Endowment funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the parish/school. In time the income generated by the gift will far exceed the original donation.

As a result, endowed funds provide a perpetual, supplemental source of income for such things as the enhancement of programs and ministries, facilities maintenance, scholarships and seminary assistance, priest retirement, etc. Learn more about endowment funds.
