Hurricane Ike Update - Approaching One Year Anniversary
Almost a year ago Hurricane Ike swept through Houston and the surrounding area. It brought destruction to many, including CSM's housing site. The roof was torn off and a lot damage occurred in a very short time. We blogged the initial update and then gave an update to how the recovery was happening. Here's the latest, now coming up on the one year mark since the storm hit:
Servants of Christ has finally received their insurance settlement and is able to begin reconstruction of the Activity Center. Work is expected to begin before the end of July. The church has a Building Committee which is designing a long-term plan for the parish. I have been invited to sit in on these meetings and am impressed with the architect who is helping to guide their plans. We'll keep you posted as other significant developments occur.
-Paul Randall, CSM Houston City Director
Please be praying for Servants of Christ (CSM housing site) as they rebuild their walls and for the rest of the community as many people are still affected by the devastation.
