Bulletin for the Week of November 2, 2014 and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

There are a lot of things going on in our parish over the next few months about which I want to keep you apprised.

This weekend we celebrate All Saints Day and All Souls Day.  We will have a Memorial Mass at 10am Sunday for all those in our community who died over the last year and for their families.  The poster with the names of those who passed into eternal life last year is located in the sanctuary of the church in front of the Blessed Mother Altar, as she is the Mother of Consolation.  Please know of my prayers for the consolation of all those who mourn the loss of a loved one, and please keep them in your prayers.  We will continue to celebrate this remembrance for the next few weeks until the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, as usual we will focus on helping those who are in need during the Thanksgiving holiday season.  We will again place baskets at the doors of the church during the month of November for food donations.  The donations will be sent to ICON for distribution to those in need in our community.  Please bring non-perishable food to help those in need.

In addition to food donations, we are also going to leave the baskets at the doors during the month of December to collect clothing donations.  As winter approaches, there is a greater need for adequate clothing.  Please  help with  donations of new or lightly used clothing for adults and children of all ages.

We are also excited to announce that we have obtained the services of a choir director for our youth, Mr. Rafael Henry.  Mr. Henry is the choir director at St. Leo Parish in Lafayette and teaches at J.S. Clark Middle School.  The organizational meeting for the choir is Thursday, November 6 at 5:15pm in the church.  All high school age youth are welcome to come and participate.  Hope to see you all there!

Finally, myself and Deacon Joubert (who is the real chef in this operation) will be participating in a gumbo cook-off to benefit John Paul the Great Academy.  The event will be held on Saturday evening, November 15 at 6pm at Vermillionville in Lafayette.  Many priests of the diocese, many of whom you know, will be participating.  It should be a fun time for all.  Please come out and support a good cause, and, of course, vote for me!!

      God Bless
