It is more important than ever before for parents to teach their children about sexuality.

Join us on Saturday, May 15 at 10 am for part one of an important two part series. Presenter Brian Butler will dive into topics like : the sacredness + purpose of sexuality; the gift of the body; facing puberty together; age-appropriate defense against pornography; communication techniques and guidelines; how parents can stay primary educators. This talk is for parents only. Open to parents of children of ALL ages. Presentation will livestream here, but will not be recorded.

New Website On the way

We are thrilled to announce that we will be finalizing details on a new website within the next few weeks. We’re finalizing the details with e-Catholic, the main provider of websites for parishes in the Archdiocese of New Orleans. We’ll be transferring our data and files with goals being ease of use, and maximum information and news provided for your praying and worship pleasure. Stay tuned as we continue to “get back to normal”, keeping our minds on Jesus Christ. 🙏🏻

Lenten Parish Mission: Simply Live!

Our daily lives are so full that we sometimes forget “who we are and whose we are.” A Parish Mission is a time of listening to God’s Word, remembering what Chris has done and energizing or true selves.Being an active, practicing Catholic includes participating in parish renewal programs and drawing others to a new life with Christ. As Christians we are Disciples of Jesus and Apostles of the Gospel.

On March 8-12, we welcome Fr. George Knab, of Missionary Oblate of Mary Immaculate from Belleville, Illinois, for our Lenten Parish Mission. There will be a question and answer session each morning following the 8 am Mass and a Mission talk each evening at 6:30 pm. Join us!
