Below is the Diocesan prayer to avert hurricanes. With a tropical storm nearby and possibly another right behind it, let us pray this daily during hurricane season
May God bless us and keep us all safe, Father Bob Pope, Pastor
Prayer to Avert Hurricanes
God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection.
We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming season. Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent
trust and hope in Your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain. You alone bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we
thank you in advance, for you are our only Refuge. We ask this through Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
Amen. Mary, Queen of the Apostles, and Patroness of our Diocese, pray for us.
