Hurricane (also known as Superstorm) Sandy was devastating to the Jersey Shore, Staten Island, New York City, Long Island, and many other communities along the East Coast. Working with the Churches of the Manasquan Ministerium, St. Uriel's supplied shelters and emergency sites with clothing, kitchen supplies, food, counseling, and financial support. St. Uriel's also was used as a site for housing recovery work teams. Many parishes throughout the country sent clothing, cleaning supplies, and financial support, as well as offering up prayers and Masses for the rescue operations. Many people of St. Uriel's generously offered their time, treasure and talents both during the storm and its aftermath.
