Today the parish decided to make a donation to support hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico. Thank you to Kristi and Hector, who are gathering information about which organization(s) we can support. More information to come... In the meantime, we wanted to share this prayer for those who may be separated from their loved ones at this time:
O God, whose fatherly care reacheth to the uttermost parts of the earth: We humbly beseech thee graciously to behold and bless those whom we love, now absent from us. Defend them from all dangers of soul and body; and grant that both they and we, drawing nearer to thee, may be bound together by thy love in the communion of thy Holy Spirit, and in the fellowship of thy saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer)
