Please pray for those impacted by the Los Angeles, California wildfires, including Sisters and staff at Carondelet Center in Los Angeles (the Skirball Fire). Leadership and staff have secured safe places for Carondelet Center residents to spend the night around Los Angeles, including the Villa Community; St. John of God and Nazareth House; communities of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange; Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary and Good Shepherd Sisters. Students at Mount Saint Mary’s University have also been evacuated.

The Skirball fire is only 5% contained and the wind is picking up speed. Authorities believe that tonight will be the most dangerous so far, given the wind conditions. Please pray for everyone affected as well as for the safety of all first responders fighting fires in Ventura, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.
