We extend our sympathy to the following parishioners who recently lost a loved one:

Dear Friends, Last week I was in Erie, PA for the annual national meeting of the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions, of which the Diocese is a long time member. During the meeting we heard from Archbishop Piero Marini, who served as master of papal ceremonies for both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict. He spoke of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy which was the first document to emerge from the Second Vatican Council in 1963. He spoke of this guiding document as not a template from the past but a guiding wisdom ever before the Church. If not for the revisions that came from the wisdom of this “thinking with the Church” we as a Church would be certainly impoverished. While there may well be controversy over the years ahead about what does the Constitution on the Liturgy mean for the Church, it will remain ahead of us, calling us to engage with God fully, consciously, and actively. I recently met with the Adult Faith Formation Committee to chart the course of the next months of Faith formation in the parish. There is a parish Bible Study beginning called; The Bible Timeline soon. The committee is reading two books Rebuilt and Forming Intentional Disciples. Both books deal with examining parish life from different perspectives: seeking vision on how Catholics become authentically alive in faith through their experience of parish life. Our intention is to develop an approach to evangelization which will be different and inviting. I hope you will be with us for the Parish Picnic, held during and after the 10:30am outdoor Mass on Sunday, October 27th. Have a blessed week. Love,

Go to to get your online copy of Stewardship Today, a monthly publication for parishioners to embrace the importance of stewardship in daily living.

 To Deacon Brent Duplessis and family on the

death of his father, Julian.

CHICKEN DINNERS Members of the Knights of Columbus will be selling tickets following each Mass this weekend for barbeque chicken dinners at the Parish Picnic on Sunday, October 27th. The dinners will include a half of a chicken, salad, green beans and a roll. You will need a ticket at the picnic to get a dinner and this will be the last opportunity to buy before the picnic. Please purchase tickets so that we will know how many dinners to prepare. Also, the Knights will be holding a Vigil Day of Prayer as part of the 40 Days for Life Baton Rouge Campaign on Thursday, October 24th. Please consider joining us. We will have information and a sign-up sheet after each Mass as well.

BISHOP’S ANNUAL APPEAL Faithful Catholic parishioners enjoy a legacy of life-affirming ministry and service in south Louisiana. Thanks to those who contribute so generously every year, the Bishop’s Annual Appeal is a treasured chapter in that story, spreading the love of Christ, meeting needs, and funding essential Catholic ministries. Many parishioners from St Jean Vianney - BR Parish have chosen to contribute to this vital mission. Every single gift makes a difference. We recognize God’s goodness, so each of us joins the psalmist and asks, “How can I repay the Lord for all the good done for me?” The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is an ideal way to affirm the Lord’s blessing. So, if you haven’t already, please offer your support this year. Give to the Lord for All His Goodness to You. Your gift will channel the love of Christ to those who need it most. If you have not yet received a copy of this year’s appeal by mail, please contact the Office of Stewardship at 225.336.8790 or For an in depth look at the ministries or programs supported through the BAA, visit

Talking with Children about Adoption: A Seminar for Parents

Elizabeth Ministry Rosebud Program Two years ago our parish’s Elizabeth Ministry expanded to include the Rosebud Program, a unique way to show dignity and worth for all life. During the month of October, Respect Life Month, in Mary’s Chapel, you will find our display with instructions about how the program works. It will help us to identify, pray for and support those who are pregnant, celebrating birth and adoption, grieving miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, infant/child death or those wanting to conceive or adopt. If you have one of these special needs, please select the appropriate color-coded silk rose and place in the vase provided. Each week, we will pray for one of the needs according to the color of a live rose, which will be in a separate vase near the display.

Talking with your children about adoption can be difficult. Join Catholic Charities’ adoption specialists/social workers on Thursday, November 7th from 6-8pm to learn how you can answer some common questions and gather the tools and understanding to have family conversations about adoption. $35 per person or $50 per couple. Register early, as seating is limited. Go to and click “Register for Upcoming Classes.” For questions, call Patrick at 225.336.8708.
