Archbishop’s Statement Regarding Hurricane Ian

Statement of Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez Regarding Devastation Caused by Hurricane Ian

Residents along the Florida coast have been bracing for Hurricane Ian for some time. Yesterday afternoon, it made landfall. As in Cuba, Ian wrought havoc claiming innocent lives and obliterating homes and businesses in its path. Along with all people of good will, I am deeply saddened by the images of the devastation and the heartbreaking losses suffered by our brothers and sisters in Christ.

In the name of the people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, I pray that God will bring comfort to those in mourning, protect the first responders seeking to aid those in harm’s way, and pour His mercy upon those affected by this natural disaster.

The storm is far from over and unfortunately projected to cause more severe damage. The forthcoming relief and clean up efforts will be monumental in the coming weeks and months. Please be a beacon of hope for those in need by supporting relief efforts.
