In August of 2016, historic flooding devastated multiple parishes and severely impacted others across the Diocese of Baton Rouge in southern Louisiana. The Catholic Commentator & Catholic Life Television team up to chronicle the events When the Waters Rose.
Parishioners throughout our diocese need your prayers and support.
On Friday, March 11, 2016, floodwaters from the Bogue Falaya River inundated Saint Joseph Abbey and Seminary College with nearly two feet of water. The impact of the flood far surpasses damages suffered in Hurricane Katrina — especially in light of record enrollment in the seminary. Although nobody was hurt, 31 buildings were damaged, and total losses may exceed $30 million.
SJASC needs your help, and with your prayers and donations, they will recover and thrive from this experience.
Please visit www.HelpTheAbbey.com to donate to the flood relief efforts.
