.- In an effort to reach out to those affected by the devastating storms the south in the last several weeks, young Hispanics from various parishes in Denver organized a benefit concert for victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. According to the archdiocesan newspaper El Pueblo Católico, young people at the parish of Our Lady Mother of the Church came up with the idea for the concert, which was attended by over 300 people.  The event featured the music of different bands, including Kerigma and Trovadores Menores, whose members belong to Our Lady Mother of the Church, Los Rockatolicos, from the parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Hinnei, from the parish of San Jose, and the band Cristo Joven, from the parish of St. Theresa.

Luis Lopez, member of the youth group at Our Lady Mother of the Church, said parishioners from across the city offered to help with the costs of the event, and many volunteered to sell tickets and t-shirts. He hoped the concert would inspire others to find ways to help those affected by the disasters.

The proceeds from the concert will be sent to Catholic Charities for distribution to those in need.
