Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I call upon the clergy and people of our diocese to take time for deliberate prayer for our sisters and brothers throughout the Caribbean Islands as they once again face the threat of violent and damaging storms.

When conditions allow, we will provide physical and tangible aid to the Caribbean, Texas, and Florida as we are able. But today I call upon our diocese to hold them all in steadfast prayer and to remember them all in our celebrations of the Holy Eucharist.

Yours in Christ,





The Rt. Rev. Lawrence C. Provenzano
Bishop of Long Island
