A Year Later
August 29, 2006
above was typical of the events on the Mississippi Gulf Coast held by
numerous churches and businesses as they held memorial services on the one
year anniversary date of Hurricane Katrina.
Peter's by the Sea Episcopal Church, located at 1912 East Beach Blvd. on
the North side of US 90 in Gulfport, held a memorial service on the
morning of the 1rst year anniversary date of Hurricane Katrina. One
of a few worship centers along the beach that are fortunate to still be
standing, the Church is still in the rebuilding stage. The Sanctuary,
still exposed to the elements, provided a stark reminder for those
attending of the devastation experienced by the Mississippi Gulf Coast
when Hurricane Katrina pushed a massive wall of sea water inland on August
"It takes time to rebuild".
