Bulletin for the Week of October 13, 2013 - and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

Beginning next week, we will place baskets at the church entrances to be used for non-perishable food collection for those in need. The baskets will remain in the church until after Thanksgiving. This collection of food items is intended to help ICONS, our local food pantry which is sponsored by an interfaith consortium, to provide for those in need during the upcoming holiday season. In addition we will also have an offertory at our Thanksgiving Day Mass to support ICONS' mission to provide food to those who are in need. Each week we will collect the food items donated and transport them to the ICONS facility located here in Opelousas for distribution.

Obviously, as Christians we are called to love and provide for our brothers and sisters who are in need, and the most basic need is that of food. In each act of charity we do, we learn to see the Face of Jesus in everyone we meet, knowing that what we do for each other, we do for Him. Conversely, what we do not do for our brothers and sisters, we did not do for Jesus Himself! Let us always pray for an end to hunger and poverty in our community, our country and in the world. But let us also make sure we do what we can to help end hunger, beginning here in our own community.

           God Bless!
