Hurricane Harvey Special Report – It Will be a Great Story of Hope

Listen Now.  Join us as Fr. Chris speaks with Fr. Luke Palumbis of St. Basil the Great Greek Orthodox Church in Houston, Texas.  Fr. Luke tells us that while the devastation is unlike anything he has seen, it’s the inspiration of Houstonians and Texans reaching out and helping one another that will be memorialized as a great story of hope.  Fr. Luke has recently given HPD and first responders a blessing to utilize its campus as the staging center for neighborhood evacuations in the area.  To learn how you can help the Houston community, please visit St. Basil the Great Greek Orthodox Church on Facebook by clicking here.    In addition Texas Strong Shirts, designed by one of the youth from St. Basil, are available for purchase on the St. Basis Facebook page – 100% of the profits will go to donations toward Hurricane Harvey.

You can also visit the International Orthodox Christian Charities site and donate to their Hurricane Harvey Response Fund.

The OCN continues to pray for Houston and all those affected by the storm and its aftermath.
