A Parish in Distress

This from Canon Hollister:

Saint Andrew's, located in Franklin, Indiana, was badly flooded in the recent storms near Indianapolis, pictures of which appeared on the national news.

Fr Keith Coyner, who is in charge of Saint Andrew's, reports that the undercroft was flooded to a height of three and one half feet. The configuration of the building means that most of the Parish's belongings including vestments were flooded; the furnace, refrigerator, etc., were also probably destroyed.

The Bishop suggested that Fr Coyner and his people would undoubtedly appreciate any messages of support we might forward through Fr Coyner, whether offering our prayers or any other support that we might be able to offer.

His email is; his phone is 317-783-4108. The address is 4705 Citation Circle, Indianapolis, IN 46237.

Thank you for making this information available. This is one of the best uses of the internet!

I flew home from Seattle yesterday and witnessed the widespread devastation of the river areas in southern Indiana. I saw the roofs of homes surrounding by miles of flood water. We must help any way we can.
