Great parish Work Day last Saturday - note from Father Brady



Many thanks to all those who came out and helped on the parish workday last weekend. Approximately 25 people attended and helped to clean up and repair our church, rectory and Valentin Hall.

It was not only a day of service to the parish, but also a day of fellowship with other parishioners. We were blessed with beautiful weather, and it seems that not only was much accomplished, but a good time was had by all. Thanks again!!!

Father James Brady

History of the Catholic Church Part 1 - Thursday Night


STARTING THURSDAY NIGHT, 6 PM!

From Father James Brady:

In October and November, we will begin our adult education with two presentations on the history of our Church, followed next spring by an introduction into Sacred Scripture. The first history presentation, which will be Thursday, October 6 at 6 pm in church, will begin with the founding of our Church and will run through the Great Schism, which occurred around 1000A.D. It will focus on, and hopefully give us an understanding of, what we commonly refer to as the “Eastern Catholic” Churches and the “Eastern Orthodox” Churches. The second presentation will take place Thursday, November 3 and will focus on the Protestant Reformation, which occurred around 1500 A.D. and will focus on the founding of the many Christian churches we commonly see here in the United States, and more particularly our Opelousas community. It is important for us to understand history so we can understand our Church, and also to understand the beliefs of the churches in our community. I hope you mark your calendars for these days and are able to attend.

Father Lafleur Memorial Mass - September 7, 2011

The Father Lafleur Memorial Mass

The Lieutenant Father Joseph Verbis Lafleur Memorial Mass will be at 6:30 PM, September 7, 2011 on the anniversary of Father Lafleur’s death at St. Landry Catholic Church, 1020 North Main Street, Opelousas, Louisiana.

The mass will be celebrated by Abbott Justin Brown, O.S.B., St. Joseph's Seminary, St. Benedict, Louisiana.

For the last several years, St. Landry Catholic Church has hosted this annual Mass in honor of one of its former altar boys; it was, in fact, through the help and guidance of the pastor, Father A. B. Colliard, that a young Lafleur was eventually able to enter the seminary. Today, some of Father Lafleur’s relatives in the Opelousas area are still parishioners of St. Landry Catholic Church. In 2007, a monument in honor of his memory was erected on the church grounds.

After being ordained to the priesthood in 1938, Father Lafleur went on to serve both his church and his country as a military chaplain during World War II. He and more than 600 other prisoners were killed when the Japanese ship transporting them was torpedoed. Although Father Lafleur’s body was never recovered, survivors later recalled that he was last seen trying to help others escape from the sinking vessel. In the years that followed, Father Lafleur’s family received letters from many others to whom he had ministered during the war, sharing their stories of how deeply the priest’s selfless actions touched and inspired them.

In October 2008, Lieutenant Colonel Peter Joseph Guerra assisted the Lafleur family in submitting a request to the U.S. Army, asking that Father Lafleur be considered for the Medal of Honor. While the family is still awaiting a decision on that matter, Lt. Col. Guerra has authored a book which chronicles Father Lafleur’s heroic endeavors as a military chaplain.

Those who are interested in learning more about Father Lafleur are encouraged to visit http://www.fatherlafleur.org/ for further information.
