Dear Percy-L:

For those in a position to help, please find below an email from St. 
Joseph Abbey about a website now set up so individuals can contribute to 
a flood relief fund for the Abbey following its recent, serious flooding 
of 2 feet of water following major storms in the area.  Please visit the 
website at: www.helptheabbey.com

For a media video showing the beauty of the historic church sanctuary 
and the recovery effort now underway, also see:

Best regards,
Henry Mills
Percy-L Administrator

Good morning Volunteers,

An easy-to-remember website is now live to make a donation towards the 
Abbey Flood Relief Fund: helptheabbey.com. Please share accordingly.

I have begun sharing with media, posting it on our social media 
channels, and placing it on different areas of both the seminary and 
abbey websites.
