We have heard from our Dominican Brothers and Sisters in Florida and they are all safe. Our friars at St. Dominic Priory in Miami were without power for four days, so that was rough for them. It came back on Wednesday afternoon. We continue to pray for all members of our Dominican family, friends, and benefactors who are recovering from Irma, including those in the Caribbean.
Also don’t forget those who are still recovering from Hurricane Harvey in Texas. Some have asked me about how to send donations to assist the victims. I recommend sending any donations to Catholic Charities in Houston, Miami, or whichever diocese you choose.
May the Blessed Mother protect all her children during this hurricane season!
Fr. Tom Condon, OP
