Prayers for Nepal

“God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in times of distress.” - Psalms 46:1

Less than three weeks after a devastating earthquake hit Nepal—leaving thousands dead, injured and homeless—a second earthquake centered midway between Kathmandu and Mount Everest stuck, leaving still more dead and injured. The Nepali people were just starting to feel safe and begin the rebuilding process when the 7.3 magnitude quake hit on May 12.

Maryknoll Father Joseph Thaler, based in Nepal for over 30 years, is working with national and local government officials, non-governmental organizations and local partners to provide medical supplies, food, water and temporary shelter to those who need it most.

Our prayers are needed more than ever as more people of Nepal are without homes, food and water and continue to be traumatized by damaging aftershocks that are destroying already unstable buildings. Landslides make it treacherous if not impossible to reach the Nepalese in rural areas, especially those still waiting for help from the April quake.

Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers from around the world are offering prayers and support. From training people to make water filters from clay pots to provide clean water... to trauma healing... to supplying convoys of trucks with rice, lentils, tents and other essentials... Maryknoll is there, to witness the compassion of Our Lord. With your support, our Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers will continue to help the people of Nepal.

Father Raymond J. Finch, M.M.
Superior General
