Six months after Hurricane Maria wreaked unprecedented devastation on the island of Puerto Rico, Catholic Extension is launching a new campaign called Patrons of Puerto Rico. This effort will assist and sustain Puerto Rican parishes so they can continue their spiritual and corporal works of mercy to serve their communities.

Often operating out of badly damaged buildings and celebrating Mass in temporary quarters, parishes have rallied armies of volunteers to distribute relief supplies and provide community and connection for the elderly and most vulnerable.
