Help for Louisiana Flood VictimsENCOUNTERING JESUS, WITNESSING WITH JOY

Louisiana Flood Response

Many of our neighbors in Louisiana are STILL struggling and homeless because of the flooding. Lift them to the Lord in prayer & scroll down to see ways you can help...

Let us pray..........   
Merciful and loving God, we lift to you our brothers and sisters in La who have been affected by the flooding.  Give eternal rest to those who have died and consolation to their families. To those who have lost their homes and possessions, please comfort them and give them perseverance to rebuild their lives. Please use us to help them and support them in these challenging times.  Flood waters take much from us, but cannot take our faith. Help us to trust in you.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Our Lady of Prompt Succor, pray for us. - Archbishop Aymond
