March 18, 2019 (Omaha, Neb.) – The Archdiocese of Omaha is holding a special collection at this weekend’s Masses to help offset the damage arising from severe flooding in northeast Nebraska.
Deacon Tim McNeil, spokesman for the archdiocese, said pastors were asked to conduct a needs assessment in their communities. Based on that evaluation, pastors can request funds from the archdiocese to aid in short- and long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts.
“Grants may be distributed to purchase water, food, shelter, cleaning supplies, tools, building materials, and tuition assistance for displaced employees,” McNeil said.
McNeil said archdiocesan funds will not be restricted to parishes and their immediate needs. He said pastors can request funds to help with community wide recovery programs.
