      THREE GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCHES SURVIVED HURRICANE KATRINA

      New York, 30 August 2005 (14:46 UTC+2)

      As Hurricane Katrina leaves Louisiana and Mississippi in the south
      United States and moves toward the north of the country authorities
      are assessing the damage caused in the regions hit.

      The extent of the damages caused by the floods to the Holy Trinity
      Cathedral in New Orleans is unknown because telephone service has
      been cut off and until the curfew is lifted nobody can visit the
      Greek Orthodox church to see the state it is in.

      However, it appears that the Holy Trinity church at Baton Rouge,
      Louisiana has suffered no damages and according to the Voice of
      America, the region was not directly in the path of the hurricane.

      Other two Greek Orthodox churches in Louisiana, St. Konstantinos and
      Eleni church in Monroe and St. Georgios church in Shreveport also
      survived Katrina.

      Archbishop Dimitrios of America watches closely the situation from
      New York and prays for the safety of all those in the path of the
      hurricane in the cities and towns in the Gulf of Mexico area and
      especially in New Orleans where the Greek Orthodox Church of America
      was first founded.
