A Note from the Diocesan Flood Response Coordinator

Dear friends,

I have heard reports of the amazing work that you are doing throughout the affected areas: Mother Karen Gay’s crews have cleaned out dozens of homes in Denham Springs; Trinity, New Orleans has fed hundreds in Denham Springs; Saint Anna’s is working closely with Grace to gut and clean West Feliciana’s most affected areas; Trinity and St. Alban’s in Baton Rouge are busy helping stressed out LSU students get back on their feet; St. Luke’s has been ministering to police officers, many of whom were severely flooded; the teachers and administrators at Episcopal School have worked tirelessly to return the school to some form of normal, Fr. Peter Kang and his team from Grace will be helping Mother Peggy in New Roads with clean-up… The stories are many! You are all making a huge difference in our area. Please continue your excellent work.

I do ask one favor. Please let me know via e-mail what you are doing so that we may be able to tell the full story of how our Diocese is responding to this crisis. This narrative will help us apply for more grants, and will help us coordinate better to make sure we are not stepping on toes and are providing services in our most needy areas. Please know that I am available to help you coordinate, to welcome  out of state volunteer groups into our Diocese, and to assist Deacon Elaine Clements in the writing of grants for needed funds.
You can reach me directly at or at 225-245-2979,
Fr. Roldan+
