Disaster Relief Donations

The Tampa Bay area was blessed to be spared the full force of Hurricane Irma, but other areas have been severely impacted by natural disasters.

Your donations and prayers are greatly needed to provide humanitarian and pastoral support to our brothers and sisters who were directly in the path of Irma and other natural disasters that have devastated communities. The money being collected by the Diocese of St. Petersburg is for a disaster relief fund – all of which will be used to provide aid for recent natural disasters as well as those that will occur in the future, as determined by Bishop Parkes.

Emergency Assistance for Puerto Rico

An emergency relief effort for Puerto Rico is underway and your help is needed! The devastation by Hurricane Maria has left many families without a home, food, water and basic supplies.

Donations that are needed include: water, canned goods, batteries, flashlights, mosquito repellent, toiletries, tarps to cover houses, nails and boards of wood to fix windows and roofs, generators, chain saw to clear out fallen trees, diapers, formulas for babies, and toilet paper.
