Prayers up for New Orleans and this Land Mass

Our Lady of Prompt Succor,
hasten to help us!
As Hurricane Isaac bears down on New Orleans and the "Land Mass" that we call home, please be sure to remember in prayer all those in its path.

Tonight, CCM will host an hour of prayer and Eucharistic Adoration at St. John's. Please join us this evening to pray for friends, family members and neighbors on the Coast and in NOLA. We will begin at 7:00pm.

Our Lady of Prompt Succor has had a special place in the devotional lives of New Orleanians ever since she was credited with protecting lives during the Great Fire of 1812 and, again, during the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. Today, she is prayed to for protection during hurricanes.

"Our Father in Heaven, through the intercession of Our Lady of Prompt Succor, spare us and our neighbors from all harm. Protect lives and property from all disasters of nature. Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us. Amen."
