Prayers Requested For Eastern Seaboard Parishes In The Path of Hurricane Irene

JOHNSTOWN, PA  [Diocesan Chancery] --  Prayers are requested for the diocesan parishes and faithful ,as well as all who are in the path of Hurricane Irene, which is projected to impact the U.S. Eastern Seaboard  from the Carolinas to the coast of New England.

 According to Diocesan Chancellor, The Very Rev. Protopresbyter Frank P. Miloro,  our  diocesan parish communities along the eastern seaboard from Virginia to coastal Connecticut are in need of prayer as the storm approaches. In particular, the parishes along the New Jersey Shore coast, which often experience flooding, and Long Island, NY, are extremely vulnerable.

As the storm approaches, all diocesan faithful are urged to offer their heartfelt prayers that Almighty God protect all those who are in the path of Hurricane Irene.

Special prayers for use at the time of dangerous weather, courtesy of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese may be accessed here
