A Kentucky parish is paying it forward using their leftover resources from a previous disaster to now help flood victims in the state.

In December of 2021, the Bluegrass State was one of eight states that was slammed by deadly tornadoes. The twisters killed at least 74 people and left behind mass devastation. But Christ the King Church in Madisonville was miraculously spared and so the parish took it as an opportunity to step up and help those who weren’t as lucky.

Months later, they are coming to the rescue again helping the victims of the latest Kentucky floods.

Father Carl McCarthy joined Currents News to explain how they’re getting involved with the flooding aftermath.
