Remembering Katrina

Remembering Katrina

.

The Rev. James “Bo” Roberts, who was St. Mark’s rector for 44 years, saw the congregation through from Hurricane Camille, which struck just four months after his arrival in 1969, through the August 2005 destruction wreaked by Katrina. He led parishioners north away from the beach and oversaw the building of a new St. Mark’s church further inland.

The Rev. Stephen Kidd, who succeeded Roberts, says the parish is now flourishing and he is blessed to experience “a resurrection story” that began before his arrival.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
