PARISHIONERS LOSE THEIR HOMES IN HURRICANE SANDY'S AFTERMATH!

The super Storm SANDY, that barreled onshore on Monday bringing massive flooding and destruction to thousands of residents of coastal New York and New Jersey, also knocked out electrical power for large parts of Manhattan, including the Cathedral's neighborhood of the East Village for four days.

The Cathedral building sustained no damage or flooding, but reports are coming in of at least two faithful parishioners who lost their homes and belongings, and will be unable to return to their apartments. Both have found temporary housing, but will need to find new accommodations very quickly, as well as furnishings, clothing, and in one case, another car.

The Cathedral will do what it can to help these parishioners cope with the trauma of this terrible loss, and to rebuild their lives. They are also eligible to apply to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for aid money made available by the US government to help them through this crisis.

More details will be made know as we learn of them.

We ask your prayers and support. Please consider sending a donation of any amount to the Cathedral now to help us to help them. You can donate online below, or by sending a check or money order made out to "Cathedral of the Holy Virgin" and earmarked, "SANDY AID."

Thank you for your help. May God repay your kindness.
