Update on Parishes in the Midwest Flood Region

March 21, 2019

A brief flood update from His Grace Bishop Basil:

This is but a brief note to let you know that I have personally spoken with both Fr. Donald Hock (frdon@stmaryomaha.com) of St. Mary in Omaha and Fr. Theodore Eklund (tleklund@gmail.com) of St. Vincent in Omaha. While there indeed is severe flooding throughout the metro Omaha region, neither of our church temples nor any residences of parishioners have sustained any flooding. Should I receive any updates I will certainly pass them along to you.

IOCC (International Orthodox Christian Charities) is sending response teams to the area. You can keep up-to-date on these efforts by visiting the IOCC web site.
