Parish friends and family,
Thank you to all who were able to respond last week as we were able to provide space and volunteers for one of the flood shelters. Those that came through our doors have asked us to extend their gratitude!
We are getting a number of calls from people ready to help and will try to keep everyone informed as recovery efforts get underway. While we may be able to coordinate some cleanup/hands on help during the recovery, right now monetary donations and some basic supplies are needed to get started.
-----Archbishop Lucas has called for a special collection to address the short-term and long-term parish and community needs arising from the flooding. Parishes affected by the flooding will then be able to request grants from the Archdiocese Finance Office to aid in short-term and long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts in their parishes and local communities.
We will hold this special collection this coming weekend, March 23-24, if you would like to participate.
You can also find other ways to help by going to the News Channel NE "Donation Central" page and the Orphan Grain Train pages through the links below.

We will continue to keep you all updated as we learn more of how we can help. Please pass this along and share with your friends.
Midtown Health Center
I am reaching out to you because Midtown Health Center behavioral health department will be offering a free weekly support group to help those that have been affected by the recent flooding in Northeast Nebraska.
The support group will be staffed by licensed therapists and will meet every Monday through the end of April (we will offer the group past April if there is a need) from 5:30 pm- 6:30 pm.
To reach as many people as possible in need, we will offer the support group on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month at the Madison City Auditorium in Madison, and on the 2nd and 4th Mondays at Midtown Health Center on Phillip Ave in Norfolk.
