We fervently request that clergy and faithful of our Metropolia offer special prayers for the victims of hurricane “Irma”, which is causing heavy damage in the State of Florida this weekend.  We are all united as friends and neighbors in the states and communities affected by hurricane “Irma” and as a family in Christ we pray for protection from the consequences of the storm.  We must be eager and ready to offer refuge and help to those who may be endangered or harmed.
