How you can help Louisiana flood victims and Archbishop Aymond's prayer for victims of the flooding.
Many of our neighbors in Louisiana are struggling and homeless because of the flooding. 10,000 people are in shelters.  Lift them to the Lord  in prayer.  Catholic Charities of New Orleans is partnering with Baton Rouge Catholic  Charities. To help, continue to check for giving information.

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.
