Bulletin for the Week of August 25, 2013 - and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

This week, we are happy to welcome Deacon Dwayne Joubert to full-time ministry in our parish!  Obviously, Deacon Joubert has been very active in his ministry as a deacon since his ordination to the diaconate last year, and as a lay member of our church parish prior to that time.  However, he now will be employed full-time in service to St. Landry.  Deacon Joubert and his wife, Mary, and daughter, Sarah are Opelousas natives and long time active parishioners here at St. Landry.  Please keep them in your prayers as they make this transition.

 Deacon Joubert will continue to minister in the same manner as he has in the past, that is, liturgical coordination, altar server training and scheduling, youth group coordination, and the myriad of other functions he volunteered to do for our church.  In addition, he will now be the coordinator for our cemetery re-organization.  The goal of the cemetery re-organization is to provide long term financial stability for the cemetery, while at the same time preserving its beauty and historical heritage.  He will work with me as well as the Cemetery Committee to achieve this goal.  It will be a time intensive task, and we thank Deacon Joubert for being willing to undertake it.

The ability to hire Deacon Joubert is directly due to the generosity of Joseph Wyble, a parishioner of St. Landry Church who moved away as a young man some 60 years ago, but never forgot his home.  He recently passed away and left a substantial donation in his estate for the maintenance of the cemetery.  Let us thank God for Mr. Wyble's generosity, and remember him and his family in our prayers!

           God Bless!

           Father James Brady
