The tan vestments worn at Mass MATCH the road construction dust. Great time to satisfy that little boy dream of running your own forklift, front loader, concrete truck. Orange protective vests are all the new fashion rage!! If you ever want to reserve a space in the parking lot, there are plenty of orange cones around. The prayer line is so faithful. They have reported an increase in requests for construction to be over soon, car repairs and help with short tempers!! A reminder that the road to Calvary could not have been as hard as traveling from Harrell’s Ferry to O’Neal. Less pounds to lose with Jay’s gone. If the church is ever needed for a shelter, the baptismal font would make an excellent gumbo pot! All the dirt piles provide a perfect setting for the Sermon on the Mount.

Great time to remind the parishioners, while waiting - - - keep your hand gestures to just the sign of the cross!!!!

Thank you to the Catholic Daughters for these words of wisdom!


LIFE TOGETHER Dear Friends, As the month of June recedes, July enters and we really know that summertime is here. People in the parish are often gone over weekends, and there is a sense of heat and humidity that wilts. If you find yourself away from the parish over a weekend, please remember us in your prayers as we will certainly be praying for you. Don’t forget your parish financial stewardship. Many times, when you are not here, your financial stewardship does not come to Church either. This week, on July 4th, we will bring to a close the national observance of the Fortnight for Freedom. This effort was encouraged by the US Bishops to raise consciousness about how Catholics can be faithful citizens in our country, and how we can witness our faith in a secular pluralistic society. This effort was not an attempt to align the Church with any one political party, as both of the major political parties are wanting as regards Catholic belief. Educating oneself about the issues that face our society and church should not be limited to times of crises or hot button issues. Creating a sense of being a faithful citizen includes study, reflection, conversation, prayer, and an optimism that God’s Spirit is not far from us in every age and season. There will be more information about being a faithful citizen in the weeks ahead. Next weekend, I will be going to the Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women in St Gabriel for Mass. I find that these women know a great deal about human loss and sorrow. Please pray for them, particularly the ones who are the poorest of the poor. The Adult Faith Formation Committee is crafting a year plan centered on the world-wide Year of Faith which begins in the Fall. We will enter this theme through Living a Eucharistic Life, i.e., how worship affects our daily living and vice versa. I hope that your celebration of the Fourth of July will be memorable. Join us for Mass at 8:30am on the 4th as we will give thanks for our liberties and for those who make these freedoms possible. Have a good week!
