Nearly two years after Hurricane Harvey, some areas still are struggling to get back on their feet.

Now, the Rockport community is rallying around them.

The Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary have served the community at the shrine and retreat center for years.

That center was devastated by Hurricane Harvey and we’re told work at the shrine was not finished.

There are 99 windows at the convent and retreat center that still need to be replaced. Residents there are rallying together to raise funds.

We’ll have more on that story later today on KRIS 6 News.
