SSL expired & can't get in to renew it


First off, apologies because SSL certificates and hosting, etc. are not really my wheelhouse. The issue though is that our blog uses Let's Encrypt and the SSL certificate expired yesterday morning, and the person who usually managed/maintained this is no longer with the company. Is there a way we can renew the certificate???

Appreciate any help!
