During hurricane season, Gulf Coast residents scrutinize forecasts and pine for Nash Roberts’ dry-erase board. Our Lady of Prompt Succor (Our Lady of Quick Help) has been the trusted source of protection from storms since the Ursuline nuns brought the devotion to NOLA.
As Patroness of New Orleans and Louisiana, her intercession has protected NOLA from disasters for over 200 years. As we face hurricane season, let us say, “Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us.”
