Devastating Floods in Houghton County 
19/6/18, 10:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Early in the morning of June 17, 2018 up to 7 inches of rain fell on the Copper Country in the span of about 6 hours. The destruction that ensued was devastating. Please remember the people of the Copper Country in your prayers. We are thankful that the monks at the Sts. Sergius & Herman Monastery were not hurt and the damage to the monastery was minor (some basement flooding). The same is true of the monastery parishioners there are no reports of major damage or casualties. But such devastation will require many resources to repair. Please pray that those who are in a position to do so will be generous to help and please donate yourself if you can. Igumen Alexander, who is our representative on the ground there, recommends that donations go to Little Brothers/Friends of the Elderly since in these situations the elderly and home bound are especially negatively impacted:
