Homilies for the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

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 homily 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 --- four years ago. This week, the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, is our two hundred seventy third and two hundred seventy fourth!! podcasts to be posted. The 8 AM mass homily is given by Deacon Sammy Diesi while the 10 AM mass homily is given by Deacon Dwayne Joubert.

So, take a listen and let us know what you think. Click here to download the 8 AM homily and click here to download the 10 AM homily from St. Landry Catholic Church, Opelousas, Louisiana.
