Helping our Brothers and Sisters in the Caribbean
“He said to them, ‘Why are you terrified, O you of
little faith?’ Then he got up, rebuked the winds
and the sea, and there was great calm.” – Matthew 8:26
Through the Storm: Helping our Brothers and Sisters in the Caribbean is an initiative organized by Most Reverend Peter A. Libasci, Bishop of Manchester, to support victims of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Through the Storm will be focused on showing solidarity with parts of the Caribbean that are still suffering from the effects of the hurricanes and still need to rebuild and restore churches, homes, schools, and hospitals.
Through the Storm will be a statewide day of prayer and will culminate in a Mass and a benefit reception with Most Reverend Roberto Octavio González Nieves, O.F.M., Archbishop of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Most Reverend Herbert A. Bevard, Bishop of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands attending.
Parishes, communities, and individuals are all invited to participate in the day of prayer by joining the Diocese of Manchester in prayer at any time.

“Recovery in the six months since Hurricane Maria has been slow, with many citizens in Puerto Rico still without power and hurricane debris piling up in the Virgin Islands,” said Bishop Libasci. “Our very own brothers and sisters here in New Hampshire have families in the Caribbean that are still suffering.”
“With the ongoing need to provide assistance to storm victims, I knew we needed to do more to help the Caribbean region,” continued Bishop Libasci. “That’s why I am hosting this day of solidarity. As infrastructure is repaired, reconstruction will restore, renew, and proclaim life and hope in Christ.”
