Ways to help...

The News Star had a great article by Hope Young on how to help flood victims in south Louisiana - You can find it here.

You can also make financial donations to St. Thomas', the Diocese of Western Louisiana or Episcopal Relief and Development (E.R.D.) - mark your donations with "Louisiana flood relief." Remember that E.R.D. provided the monies that helped us during our recent floods!

And, of course, pray, pray, pray! Reach out in love to those you know in that part of the state!
