Homilies for the Feast of the Ascension - May 12 2013

Homilies are now available to download and listen to!

As part of our answering the challenge of the Holy Father to go out and evangelize utilizing new technologies, we're now offering the homily each week for download. Clicking the link to the homily should download it and automatically start it playing in whatever music player your computer is set up with.

On the technical side, the file sizes are about 5 megs which means it may a minute or two to download on slower Internet connections. It is also an MP3 formatted file which means that these are essentially podcasts. Don't worry if all the technical words don't mean much to you. It means we're using the latest in technology in order to make sure our church parish can reach the most people.

The current week's homilies is available on a link on the front page of the website next to the link for the current week's bulletin. On the page with the prior bulletins, the corresponding homily will be sitting side by side with its bulletin. We started on the anniversary of the start of the Catholic Church, Pentecost Sunday --- nearly four years ago. This week, the Feast of the Ascension, we have our two hundred sixty second and two hundred and sixty third!! podcasts posted. The homilies are given by Deacon Dwayne Joubert at 8AM and Deacon Sammy Diesi at 10AM.

So, take a listen and let us know what you think. Click here for Deacon Joubert and Click here for Deacon Diesi to download the homilies from St. Landry Catholic Church, Opelousas, Louisiana.
