2018 YEAR of PRAYER for CANCER ALLEY in Louisiana

The LIC Board of Directors passed a resolution at the 2017 Fall Board Meeting, designating 2018 as a Year of Prayer for Cancer Alley in Louisiana. 

Cancer Alley is a well-known area along the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, which contains numerous industrial plants.  In this River Parishes area, higher than normal cancer rates of lung and kidney cancers are found, as well as an abnormally high rate of some rare cancers.

Around 60 people gathered in the small community of Welcome, LA (in St. James Parish) for the opening service of the 2018 Year of Prayer for Cancer Alley held on Saturday, January 27, 2018.  The event was hosted by Mount Calvary Baptist Church, with prayers offered by many pastors whose church members have been affected by the higher rates of cancer in the Cancer Alley area.  The LIC Stewardship of the Environment Commission is partnering with the LA Bucket Brigade and others in addressing these concerns.

Our LIC Executive Director, Fr. Dan Krutz was among those attending the event (see photo on left).   Various participants gave first-hand accounts of how cancer has affected their lives and families.  Please remember to keep the peoples of this petrochemical corridor area in your prayers.

from future hurricanes. 

There is only One who can calm the storms in our lives!

Prayers for June 1st and beyond

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 bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we thank you in advance, for You are our only Refuge. We ask this through Jesus Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.


God, Our Father, Creator and Lord of the universe, You have set the earth on its foundation and all the elements of nature obey Your command. We humbly beseech You to keep us safe from all dangers and calm the storms that threaten us. May we be secure in Your loving protection and serve You always with grateful hearts. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever. Amen.
