Compassionate Lord, we pray for those who have been devastated by recent natural disasters and unimaginable violence. We remember those who have lost their lives so suddenly. We hold in our hearts the families forever changed by grief and loss. Bring them consolation and comfort. Surround them with our prayer for strength.
Bless those who have survived and heal their memories of trauma and devastation. May they have the courage to face the long road of rebuilding ahead.
We ask your blessing on all those who have lost their homes, their livelihoods, their security and their hope. Bless the work of relief agencies and those providing emergency assistance. May their work be guided by the grace and strength that comes from You alone.
Help us to respond with generosity in prayer, in assistance, in aid to the best of our abilities. Keep our hearts focused on the needs of those affected, even after the crises are over. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
We know that many members of our Carondelet community are impacted by the fires in the North Bay.
Our hearts go out to every person who has lost a family member or friend, and to those who have lost their homes and livelihoods.
We humbly pray for them to find consolation, strength, and hope. As a school, we are looking into the ways that we can offer meaningful help to our neighbors in the midst of this catastrophe.
We welcome our community to share their messages in the comments on our Facebook page.
Thank you and God bless.
