Post Landfall Hurricane Update

{Updated on October 8 at 9:13 PM in bold}
With all six of Georgia’s coastal counties still under mandatory evacuation and officials urging those who have remained to stay in place so that emergency crews can clean up the debris left in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, the Diocesan House is receiving informal reports on various properties. While no churches have been inspected fully, we have received word that Christ Church Savannah, St. Paul’s Savannah, St. Michael and All Angels Savannah, St. Luke’s Rincon, St. Elizabeth’s Richmond Hill, St. Thomas’ Isle of Hope, St. Peter’s Savannah, St. Mark’s Brunswick, St. Andrew’s and St. Cyprian’s Churches Darien, and St. Patrick’s, Pooler all look to have sustained little or no damage. 

Despite the storm, four of our 24 coastal churches do have services scheduled:  
St. Luke’s, Rincon at 9:40 AM
St. Michael and All Angels, Savannah at 10:30 AM
The Church of St. Paul the Apostle, Savannah, said Mass at 10 AM

Let us pray:
Almighty God, who stilled the raging sea and saved your disciples perishing in a storm, we give thanks for your presence with us in the midst of Hurricane Matthew. We pray for all working to make way for evacuees to return home, and we remember those killed by the storm and those who mourn. Help us to be ever mindful that it is in you we hope and find peace even in the midst of the storms of this life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
-Canon Frank Logue
