    My Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus, As we continue to persevere during these trying and challenging times, we trust that God is with us and will get us through to a brighter tomorrow. The Diocese of Lafayette ordained three Transitional Deacons and eight Permanent Deacons on Saturday, May 23, 2020 at 10:00 . The Rite of Ordination to the Order of Deacons took place at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Lafayette. While the Ordination was closed to the public due to the coronavirus, let us keep these men in our prayers as they seek to serve the Lord and our diocese. The following men were ordained as Permanent Deacons which means they will be assigned to one of our church parishes in the diocese. Let us keep the following men in our prayer: Dcn. Albert Alexander, Dcn. Richard Castañeda, Dcn. Adam Conque, Dcn. Shawn Gautreaux,

    Dcn. Bryan Istre, Dcn. Michael McKee, Dcn. David Menard, and Dcn. Kyle Polozola

    The Diocese of Lafayette also ordained three men as Transitional Deacons. Following their ordination to the Diaconate, will undergo their final year of education and training before their expected and anticipated ordination to the Holy Priesthood in 2021. Please keep the following men in your prayers as they discern their final year before ordination to the priesthood:

    Rev. Mr. Connor Poirrier, Rev. Mr. Seth Lemaire, and Rev. Mr. Casey Dugas

    On Saturday, June 6, 2020, the Diocese of Lafayette will ordain two men to the Sacred Order of the Priesthood. The ordination will take place at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Lafayette. At this time, the ordination is closed to the public due to the coronavirus. Let us keep these two men in our prayers as they prepare to undertake the awesome responsibility of serving our diocese as good and holy priest. The following men will be ordained to the priesthood:

    Rev. Mr. John Joseph (Bourque), CJC and Rev. Mr. Andrew Killeen

    Amidst the circumstances that we find ourselves in, our world in, God continues to be with us by calling men to serve His people. They are a sign of His love for us that we are able to continue to pray Mass, to receive Holy Communion, to receive the sacraments and to gather in His Son’s Name as a community of faith in remembrance of what He has done for us.

  • The Sacrament of First Communion is scheduled for Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 11:00 in the church. Due to the Coronavirus only parents and the children making their First Holy Communion are allowed to attend. At the time of this writing and sending the bulletin off for printing there are no changes in the practices that we are currently doing. If there are any updates, we will do our very best to get the word out to you. Let us continue to be thankful that once again we are able to celebrate Mass together. Blessings and Peace to all of you, Fr. David

    SUCCESSFUL FOOD DRIVE! Words fail to convey our gratitude and appreciation to everyone for an exceptionally successful food drive!! Your generous outpouring of dry foods and goods, supports outreach in our area which eases the burdens of the men, women, and children experiencing hunger and homelessness in our beloved Acadiana. Your gracious response helped us deliver 2,708 lbs., over one ton of food, to Second Harvest Food Bank during the COVID-19 crisis. This organization, whose mission is to end hunger, distributes daily shipments to food pantries in Acadiana, including St. Joseph Diner. The staff at the warehouse who received our St. Elizabeth Ann Seton donation expressed the following comments:

    We are so amazed, grateful and appreciative for your donation! It’s unbelievable!

    We have food drives that are collected over a month’s time and don’t get half this much!

    Y’all must have some Godly people at your church!

    We are so thankful for your participation in this magnificent effort! We would especially like to thank Breaux’s Mart for their donation of the paper bags! We are so grateful to TMIY (That Man is You) volunteers who annually handle pick-up and delivery of our food drive collection. We extend heartfelt thanks to Jon Citron who coordinates the delivery. Mother Teresa of Calcutta said, “I used to pray that God would feed the hungry, or do this or that, but now I pray that he will guide me to do whatever I'm supposed to do, what I can do.” May the Lord, our God, bless us in all that we undertake for His praise, honor and glory.


    Students, and most adults recalling their school days, are familiar with the phrase “compare and contrast” that shows up from time to time on tests. Today we hear two different accounts of the giving of the Holy Spirit to the Church. Let’s contrast, then compare. Luke’s account from Acts is filled with arresting details: the mighty wind from heaven, the tongues of flame, the miracle of different languages. John’s account seems timid: fearful disciples, the wounded Christ, the expelling of breath from his risen body, not from the sky. Our literal, modern minds wonder which way it happened; our noisy culture probably makes us prefer the former. But if we compare the two, we find that the dazzling richness of the Spirit fills both accounts, for it is the very breath of the risen Christ, ascended to the sky in Luke, that appears to his disciples in John and sends his followers forth to carry on his mission of forgiving sin and proclaiming the mighty acts of God. _____________________________________________


    Liturgy: Work of the Spirit

    The Spirit of God who hovered over the waters at the dawn of creation—the Holy Spirit who descended upon the disciples at Pentecost in ever-changing forms in the sound of a mighty wind or tongues of flame—hovers also over our celebration of the liturgy, giving it life, making it real. It is the Spirit of God who draws us, gathering us together, Sunday after Sunday. It is the Spirit of God who called loudly to the inspired writers of the scriptures and who continues to whisper to us, revealing ever-new facets of God’s word, granting insight just when we need it. It is by the Spirit’s power that, when Christ’s words are uttered by the priest, the bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ. And it is surely the Spirit who inspires us—that is, breathes in us—when, sent forth from the assembly, we seek ways to serve our brothers and sisters, to allow the gospel to come to life in the world. Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love.

    O God, Master of this passing world, hear the

    humble voices of your children. The Sea of Galilee obeyed your order and returned to its former quietude. You are still the Master of land and sea. We live in the shadow of a danger over which we have no control. The Gulf, like a provoked and angry giant, can awaken from its seeming lethargy, overstep its conventional boundaries, invade our land and spread chaos and disaster.

    During this hurricane season we turn to you, O Loving Father. Spare us from past tragedies whose memories are still so vivid and whose wounds seem to refuse to heal with the passing of time. 0 Virgin, Star of the Sea, Our Beloved Mother, we ask you to plead with your Son in our behalf, so that spared from the calamities common to this area and animated with a true spirit of gratitude, we will walk in the footsteps of your Divine Son to reach heavenly Jerusalem where a storm-less eternity awaits us.
