Father John Henderson, Dean of the Mississippi Valley Deanery, reports that all of the Antiochian clergy and laity in the Deanery are safe and sound — but it is too early to know about property damage. This Deanery includes nine communities in Arkansas (Little Rock & Springdale/Fayetteville), Louisiana (Lafayette & Metairie/New Orleans), Mississippi (Madison/Jackson & Vicksburg), and Tennessee (Memphis, Grand Junction & Franklin/Nashville). Father Peter and Khouriya Pamela Nugent and their children of St Basil Church in Metairie/New Orleans evacuated to the home of family members in the Houston area. All other clergy and their families were able to remain at their homes during the storm(s). Please keep all those affected by Hurricane Katrina in your holy prayers.
