Hurricane Florence has made landfall in North Carolina, its crushing winds setting up hours and hours of destruction. Rising water is bringing life-threatening storm surges – up to 10 feet – along the coasts.
In response to the devastation, the Supreme Council has launched an online donation drive to assist with local relief operations. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go directly to relief efforts.
Your support is urgently needed. Please DONATE TODAY to help those suffering such devastation.

Prayer against Storms
As printed in the Roman Missal
O God, to whose commands all the elements give obedience,
we humbly entreat you,
that the stilling of fearsome storms may turn a powerful menace
into an occasion for us to praise you.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
