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.

Kickoff event: 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. 

Other services have been held throughout the year of 2018.

Our LIC Executive Director, Fr. Dan Krutz was among those attending the January event (see photo on left), as well as other events Various participants have given 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.

Coastal Creation Care -

St. Francis of Assisi has been declared the Patron saint of those who promote care for nature.  He died in October of 1226, and his life is recommended as a guide for animal and nature lovers, environmentalists and ecologists, showing us how to live in a way that respects and honors nature as God's creation.

  St. Francis of Assisi Feast Day is held annually on October 4th.  We hope this day will be a reminder for you to do your part in saving our wetlands and wildlife here in the Gulf south area.   To stay up to date about how you can support the coast, visit: http://mississippiriverdelta.org
