In the event of an emergency some individuals may need additional assistance leaving their homes, or responding to emergency conditions by themselves. The State of Texas Emergency Assistance Registry (STEAR) allows residents to provide information on their specific situation to emergency management officials who will work to help them evacuate safely, or provide them with the appropriate life-sustaining help they need in a disaster. This information also helps emergency planners as they develop plans and procedures for assisting residents during emergencies.

God of compassion,
You created a world for us
To know your love and peace
Yet amidst the beauty of creation
We encounter pain and hurt
And forces beyond our control.
At times like this our hearts are shaken and ache with sorrow
At the destruction of our lives, homes and livelihoods.
Hear our prayers for those affected by disasters
And for all those working
To bring relief and fresh hope.
|Help After A Storm|
As urgent needs are cared for by the Red Cross and local disaster response agencies immediately following a disaster, we know that the impact of this type of a crisis affects the lives of victims far past the immediate emergency responses. This type of disaster displaces families, ruins vehicles, destroys possessions and causes loss of wages. These can cause overwhelming stress and negative vulnerabilities, as parents, children and individuals struggle with day to day life without the comforts of their home, clothing, possessions and personal transportation.
Our Parish Outreach Ministry partners with agencies in the area who assist victims of a storm related disaster. We look at the unmet needs and create special Outreach Projects to assist our partners in their care for victims.
