Report from Houston in the Wake of Harvey - UPDATED

Hurricane Harvey's unrelenting rains have caused dangerous flooding throughout the Houston, Texas, area. This province has two high schools and nearly a dozen Jesuits in the area. We can report with relief and gratitude that at this time, all members of the Jesuit Community and school communities are safe. 

At least 50 families in the Jesuit community have been flooded out of their homes. 

Strake Jesuit College Preparatory has sustained relatively minor damage, with leaky roofs and standing water, but no severe structural or tree damage. Faculty and staff will return to school on Friday, September 8th for a day of inservice in preparation for the resumption of class on Monday, September 11th. All classes, practices, competitions, meetings, and extracurricular activities are cancelled until classes resume on September 11th.

Cristo Rey Jesuit reopened on Tuesday, September 5. As a Cristo Rey school, with a mission of providing Catholic Jesuit education for lower-income students, it will be particularly affected by the impact of Hurricane Harvey on the Houston economy, with new challenges associated with funding scholarships, school programs, and the work-study program.

Please join us in praying for the people of South Texas who have been so terribly impacted by this storm. This story will be updated as more news comes in.
