As North and South Carolinians begin the process of assessing and recovering from the devastating effects of Hurricane Florence many have asked, “how can we help?” The Diocese of the Carolinas has two parishes in and close to the heavily affected portion of North Carolina, Grace Church in New Bern, and Christ Church in Little Washington. And, of course, there are other Anglican parishes in the affected areas as well. You may make a financial gift to the Anglican Relief and Development Fund (https://ardf.org/relief-2018-hurricane-florence). Our Diocese will be working closely with the ARDF to administer these funds helping to ensure that those most affected will experience the benefit of your generosity. Andy Breaux, St. Andrew’s, Mt. Pleasant, will be organizing teams to assist in the affected areas. Please keep all those in the affected areas in your prayers, as well as the first responders and relief crews already at work.
