Mega Humanitarian Mission

The first ever [United States Mega Humanitarian Mission][1] will run in New Orleans, LA from the 26th to the 30th of December with three days of work in the homes, parishes, and schools flooded by Katrina. Hundreds of youth and families will come to Louisiana to help in cleaning and rebuilding effort in New Orleans area homes and parishes. More important than the gift of their material assistance, is the hope their presence will bring to the city of New Orleans, its church, and its people; hope in a season and a town where it is most needed.

Almost three months after Hurricane Katrina, half of the diocese's 150 parishes still remain closed. Hundreds of priests are unable to return to their parishes. Hundreds of thousands of New Orleans’s residents are scattered across the country with no homes or schools to come home to.
