This just out yesterday:
Our bretheren in Louisiana have been patiently slogging through floodwaters to repair their parish and retrieve their property. Here’s how to help:
As we reported last week, the SSPX parishes in Louisiana have been hit with a flood that is a 500-year rarity. Several of our parishioners suffered a total loss of home and property, another family lost all their belongings, and the Our Lady of Sorrows Chapel in Baton Rouge is uninhabitable.
The District House has set up an emergency fund to assist these families and the church to regain at least some sense of normalcy after this trying and difficult time.
Our faithful are encouraged to give – even a little – in order to provide temporal help to these good people, and to pray for their perseverance as they work through this cross they have been given.
For further information on the flood and the clean-up effort, we invite you to review the article posted last week: Historic Flooding Strikes SSPX Parish
We know that many of our families are large, and extra finances are a luxury – so it is with a grateful acknowledgement of this potential sacrifice and charity that we request help for our Louisiana faithful.
Please offer your spiritual and, if possible, your financial support to my parish, as it recovers from this catastrophic and historic flood. Our Pastor, Fr. Greig Gonzalez and the entire parish thanks you all very much for your love and support during this trial that some of our families and the parish are facing. With God’s help, we will rebuild. Thank you.
