Binghamton Flood Appeal

October 11, 2006

JOHNSTOWN, PA - His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas has issued the following statement regarding the June  Catastrophic Flood in the New York State and Binghamton Region:

TO: Diocesan Parishes

RE: Flooding in the New York Southern Tier Region

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Reverend and dear Fathers and Faithful:

June floods in the Southern Tier region brought extensive damage to properties of hundreds and hundreds of homeowners. Losses are now estimated to exceed $250 million dollars.

At least 10 families of St. Michael's Church in Binghamton have suffered different degrees of loss, varying from extensive basement flooding to total loss of homes and possessions. Under the direction of Father James Dutko and the Parish Board of Officers, immediate action was taken to support those suffering losses. Some relief has come, but more is needed.

We are appealing to the generosity of our good faithful to come to the assistance of our brothers and sisters in need, especially now before the winter comes upon us. Within the scope of your individual financial ability, we are asking that you make a gift payable directly to St. Michael Parish for distribution. Gifts can be mailed to:

St. Michael's Flood Relief Fund

St. Michael Church

280 Clinton Street

Binghamton, New York 13905.
