Priests, missing in action

THE NEW YORK TIMES reports that half of the 300 priests of the Archdiocese of New Orleans are unaccounted for.

"The chaos surrounding Hurricane Katrina may have already claimed the life of one of [Archbishop Hughes'] priests, the Rev. Thomas Kinney, who had cancer and died at St. Clare's Nursing Home in Baton Rouge on Saturday night, just after he evacuated from New Orleans. Two priests who stayed to minister to refugees in the Superdome are missing. Archbishop Hughes has not heard from a third priest, who went to the Louis Armstrong airport in New Orleans to tend to elderly, frail and disabled residents who were being airlifted for medical treatment."
