FAIR SET-UP DAYS
Saturdays, Oct. 1 & Oct. 8 at 8:30AM
The Fair Committee invites you to come out and help set-up our annual Fall Festival on the backfield on Saturdays, October 1 & October 8 beginning at 8:30 AM. This is a big job and we need your help! Students needing service hours are particularly welcome!!! Refreshments and a "FREE LUNCH" for all the fair set-up workers will be served.
October is the month when we recall the tragic ways our country has turned away from the Gospel of Life. During this month, we will have a weekly reflection on respecting life:“Nothing, not even a patient’s request - which more often than not is a cry for help - can justify the taking of a life which is precious in the eyes of God and which can be a great gift of love to a family even in the suffering of the final days.” Pope St. John Paul II
The SMM-CYO will be selling 2017 Right-to-Life Calendars for $5 each outside of the church after all Masses on October 1 & 2, Respect Life Sunday. Proceeds help New Orleans Right to Life and the CYO. Afterwards the calendars will be available for purchase at the rectory office Monday-Thursday, during regular business hours until the end of the month. Thank you in advance for your support.
Please read Archbishop Aymond's letter to the Clergy, Religious and Laity of the Archdiocese of New Orleans in the PDF file found here: /documents/2016/9/Elections%2020160001.pdf
In his letter Archbishop Aymond states, very emphatically, that information from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is the only approved voter guidance that can be distributed in our Catholic Churches. The button above, Faithful Citizenship, has the link to the USCCB document that provides voter guidance.
Copy of Archbishop's letter & Faithful Citizenship inserts mayalso be found in parish bulletin for October 1 & 2 weekend.
