Diocesan Social Concerns: As we enter into this year’s hurricane season, we hope that last year’s season will not be repeated.  As we look forward with hope, we also need to look back and continue to provide hope and support to those still trying to rebuild their lives after Hurricane Katrina.  The following prayer is being circulated throughout the south.  Please consider praying it daily in solidarity.

Spirit of the Living God, fall afresh on us.  You, who hovered over the waters and brought all into being, grant us the grace to be people of peace and hope during this 2006 hurricane season.  Help us to trust, to make wise choices, and to offer all we are and do each day for the good of all your creation.  In the name of the one who calmed the waters and winds, Jesus our Brother, we pray.  Amen.

For information about the diocesan efforts to help our sisters and brothers rebuilding their lives after Katrina through the Diocesan Family Relief Fund, please contact the Office for Social Concerns, 614-241-2540 or
