Crews have been clearing the rubble since Tuesday.

Due to the conditions of the entire property and lack of restroom facilities they are limiting the all inclusive schedule.

Father Samuel said the clean-up process will take some time while crews continue to monitor and assess damage.

They welcome any financial donations through their website and the local parish website as well.
