Hurricane Update (9-6-08) - Much of Baton Rouge is still without electricity, though phone service is improving. There is no electricity at the Church, but we will follow our regular Sunday schedule on September 7. Our rented facility was not damaged.
We have made contact with a few members of the congregation - we have not had any reports of injury and only limited reports of property damage. Concerns include the limited availability of ice and gasoline, as well as income loss because of business closures and disruptions.
We give thanks to God for His merciful protection throughout the storm and its aftermath.
Let the heavens rejoice!
Let the earth be glad!
For the Lord has shown strength with His arm.
He has trampled down death by death.
He has become the first born of the dead.
He has delivered us from the depths of hell,
and has granted to the world great mercy!
- Resurrectional Troparion, Tone 3
