Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
Please continue to keep in your prayers all those across the south who are suffering from the flooding caused by the torrential rainstorm this past Thursday and Friday. The rivers and creeks are still rising and the danger is not over yet. At this time, none of our churches suffered damage from the flooding. However, the kindergarten building of Christ Episcopal School took on water when the Bogue Falaya River flooded downtown Covington.
There were many parishioners and neighbors of our Northshore churches who were affected by the flooding though. We have received emergency funds from Episcopal Relief and Development so the churches in the flood areas can assist the most vulnerable in their community. These funds will be distributed soon.
Please consider making a donation to the Episcopal Relief and Development US Disaster Program. You can donate here: www.episcopalrelief.org/what-you-can-do/donate-now/individual-donation.
The Rt. Rev. Morris K. Thompson, Jr.
Bishop of Louisiana
