PB Visits Dioceses of Louisiana, Mississippi

I was going to post on Katrina students in Idaho or Chris Dodd today, but this is too hot to pass up! From Episcopal News Service:

"Learning about the ongoing relief efforts of the dioceses of Mississippi and Louisiana in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori joined new bishops and spouses on the Gulf Coast January 17-19 on her first official visit to the region since taking office as presiding bishop.

Twelve new bishops and bishops-elect, along with their spouses, gathered at the Solomon Retreat Center in Louisiana beginning January 15 and were joined by Jefferts Schori on January 17 when the group heard from Bishops Duncan Gray of Mississippi and Charles Jenkins of Louisiana about the Church’s ongoing relief efforts and spent three days visiting areas and churches along the Gulf Coast that had been impacted by the hurricane.

And look at some of these pictures! This is PB Schori at my old rig and Walgreen's on Caffin and St. Claude in the Lower Ninth Ward. Yay!

(Judging by the way the RVs/signs are arranged in the photos, they've changed the way the New Orleans mobile units are run since I left, which is no suprise, but that's a whole 'nother story!)
