"Compassionate God, source of all comfort,
We pray for those whose lives have been devastated by rain and flood. Bring them comfort, we pray. Protect the vulnerable. Strengthen the weak. Have mercy on all those working to rescue the stranded and feed the hungry. And may our response to their suffering be generous and such as would bring you praise.

-- Amen

Additional ways you can help:

  • Contributions to Episcopal Relief and Development, marked #LAFlood.
  • Contributions to the Bishop's Discretionary Fund, The Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana, 1623 Seventh St., New Orleans, LA 70115
  • Pre-paid Visa Cards. Drop off at church to be distributed at shelters.
  • Shelters are in need of NEW underwear and socks -- all sizes. Drop off at the church, and we'll deliver, or take to the shelter nearest you.

Please, NO clothing, at the church or at shelters, unless you are contacted, directly. The space and manpower are overwhelming and better used elsewhere 'til we know exactly who needs what.

Please help us help you! Complete the following form if you need help or can offer help, and we'll be in contact ASAP.
