Plaquemines Parish slowly rebuilds after Isaac
They have made it a little closer to home.
On Sept. 4, 69 residents from Plaquemines Parish who were evacuated to shelters in northern Louisiana after Hurricane Isaac arrived at the former St. Louise de Marillac Catholic School in Arabi, which was converted after Hurricane Katrina into living quarters for recovery volunteers.
“God bless you,” Archbishop Aymond told the weary pilgrims as they disembarked a bus after a five-hour journey from the Jewella Street shelter in Shreveport.
