Oh Dear...

I've been out of the loop for a couple days, so didn't notice 'til now that in addition to Katrina and Rita, there's been another hurricane, Stan, that has wreaked some havoc in El Salvador & Guatemala. In particular, there's been a bad mudslide in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala, which happens to be one town over from San Lucas Toliman, where the Diocese of New Ulm sponsors a mission. (I took a service trip there in June, 2000.) As of right now, the mission's website even has a few photos from Santiago Atitlan, though they appear to have been taken before this last (large) mudslide...

Prayers are needed. It looks like the New Ulm diocese is accepting donations, as well.
