Kerala, India experiences devastating floods

As we wait in prayerful hope for rain in our own region, we are aware that, in other parts of the world, people are experiencing the opposite with devastating floods. 

Bishop Michael McKenna said, "In a special way, we are conscious of the plight of people in Kerala. We are blessed with many faithful and priests from that region living in our parishes: and I have sent them a message of solidarity, united in prayer for their loved ones and those who have died".

Please keep the people of Kerala in your prayers. If would like to donate to the appeal that Caritas has launched to help respond to this natural disaster, the details are as follows:
