Prominent clergy taking part in Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts on Staten Island

From Staten Island-

Prominent clergy of many faiths have visited areas of Staten Island ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, consoling the victims and raising various donations for the needy.

Episcopal Bishop Andrew Dietsche was at Christ Church New Brighton on Sunday to help sort through donations, including a shipment of clothes collected by the West Side JCC in Manhattan. Deacon Beverly Neuhaus, the director of Richmond Senior Services, took the bishop to visit affected parishioners in South Beach, Midland Beach and Tottenville, including a stop at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Tottenville.

Episcopal Bishop Mark Sisk met the Rev. Roy Cole at St. John's Episcopal Church in Rosebank, which experienced the most storm damage of any Episcopal Church on the Island. The bishop was shown the steeple which was badly damaged by the hurricane. Bishop Sisk and Fr. Cole then visited Midland Beach and St. Stephen's Church.
