Bulletin for the Week of June 14, 2015 and the Pastor's Corner

The Pastor’s Corner 

Although we have been celebrating Ordinary Time at our daily Masses, this is the first Sunday that we've celebrated a Mass in Ordinary Time in our Sunday liturgy.  This is an indicator that we are now solidly into the summer season, and with that comes our summer activities here at the church.

Our young people will be travelling later this month to "Steubenville on the Bayou" in Houma, which will be held from June 26th-28th.  Deacon Joubert will be leading the group, with the able assistance of his wife, Mary, and our seminarian, Michael Vidrine.  There still may be room available if any of our young people ( those who are entering 9th grade through those who have just graduated) are interested.  Please contact Deacon Joubert if you would like to go or would like further information.

Our Vacation Bible School will be the week of July 13th through July 17th.  It is a week of learning about the bible and our Catholic faith for our elementary school age children.  It is both educational and fun.  Please call the office or Deacon Joubert if you would like to register or need additional information.

Finally, RCIA registration will begin later this summer.  If you know anyone who is interested in becoming Catholic, please encourage them to attend the program.  The program is also helpful for those who simply want to learn more about their Catholic faith or those who would like to be Confirmed (there is a shorter Adult Confirmation program that begins after the first of the year as well).  The RCIA program extends through the Fall and Winter, and those in the program will receive their Sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass in March.

Sanctuary Light

Now that our sanctuary light has been re-installed, I'd like to provide a few notes about it's history, and to thank those who provided the previous sanctuary light.  The previous sanctuary light, which has been used for more than a decade, was donated by Mrs. Lorraine Dupuis, In Memory of B.D. Dupuis.  We thank the Dupuis family for their generosity and kindness in donating the sanctuary light.  It hasn't been retired, though.  It will still be used in the chapel in Valentin Hall, where we have our First Friday Eucharistic Adoration, weekly Saturday morning Mass, and is also a place for people to come and pray during the day.  The re-installed sanctuary light now hanging was originally donated by the Sandoz Family.  It was restored by one of our parishioners, and the bracket was donated by Lucius Doucet and Rose Boulet.  Many thanks to all!

Sanctuary Campaign

Two weeks ago I mentioned in my homily that last weekend we would finish our Sanctuary Campaign acknowledgments.  I was wrong...we had a number of donations in the last week of the campaign that necessitated us doing one more acknowledgment insert this weekend (a good problem to have!).  With the additional donations, we did exceed $150,000 for the campaign.  Again, Many Many Thanks!
