Out of Deep Waters: Bishop says New Orleans ministry keeps evolving
It was clear to Diocese of Louisiana Bishop Morris Thompson Jr. when he began his episcopate in 2010, five years after Hurricane Katrina, that the storm had “deeply wounded” the people of the diocese.

“There’s still areas of New Orleans that are devastated,” said Thompson, adding because of New Orleanians’ ongoing needs, the diocese’s ministries that began in Katrina’s wake have continued to evolve 10 years on.
