Bulletins Delayed


Our weekly Bulletins are currently in Arkansas, en route from Texas. These things happen after Hurricanes.

You can find the Bulletin online here.

Sunday Evening 6:00 Mass Cancelled

evening in Abita

For the foreseeable future, the Sunday Evening, 6:00 pm Mass is cancelled.

We certainly hope to reinstate it in the future. But given the shortage of priests in the area, it’ s a necessity at this point in time.

Stay tuned, and stay in prayer. We will get through this time in the life of Faith and in the life of the Archdiocese.

Mass times will continue to be:

Saturday Vigil

4:00 pm – St Michaels Mission in Bush.

6:00 pm – St. Jane in Abita Springs.

Sunday Morning

8:00 am

10:00 am

12 Noon Latin Mass

We sincerely hope to reinstate the Sunday evening 6:00 pm Mass in the future. Please continue to pray for our Archdiocese.


Office Re-opening Tuesday, 9/7/21

Office reopening

Our Office will re-open Tuesday, at 8:30am. Come on by and social distance, hand sanitize, and say hello. 🙏🏻

Details on Confirmation Classes, Parish School of Religion, etc, will continue via our private communication avenues, and via announcements here once our staff is able to respond with adequate internet availability.

Continued prayers for our parishioners and staff in need of aid.


Sunday Mass Times – Obligation Dispensed

Abita Cleanup

Mass times are: 4:00 pm in Bush, 8, 10 and 12 in Abita: 12 Noon is the Latin Mass. We will have no 6:00 pm Masses in Abita Springs, on Saturday or Sunday.

As of this writing, downtown Abita Springs does not have power, and the Church is blazing hot in the evening. Also, the obligation to attend Mass is dispensed due to the Hurricane cleanups, and ongoing hardships, experienced by many in the wake of Hurricane Ida.


First Friday at St. Jane Church and St. Michael Chapel

First Friday Adoration

First Friday and time to head to Mass and Adore the Lord!

St. Jane will have Mass at 8:00 am, followed by Adoration and Confessions from 8:30 – 9:30 am, with Benediction at 9:30 am. St. Michael’s Mission in Bush has power and will be open 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, for fellowship, prayer, and for those in need of a/c and cooling down.

St. Jane will be open all day, with donations and relief supply until 10:00 am once more – not certain about the power supply yet.


Ida Relief Drive

Ida Aftermath

St. Jane donation drive begins tonight at 6pm.

Please bring non-perishable supplies such as water, ice chests, hand sanitizer, sandwich bread, peanut butter, jelly, breakfast cereal, granola bars, gum, toilet paper, paper towels, diapers of all sizes including adult diapers. No clothes or foods that need to be refrigerated will be accepted at this time.

We will begin distributing donated goods tomorrow – 9/1/21 – AFTER 8 am Mass. Volunteers will be needed. Meet at 6 pm tonight, 8/31/21 in St. Jane Hall to discuss the plan.

Monetary donations will be accepted. Please make checks out to St. Jane de Chantal Catholic Church. Stores are opening, yet many are unable to get to them.

8:00 AM Masses Only until the Power is Restored

Ida Recovery

Rid yourselves, then, of all defilement, of all the ill-will that remains in you; be patient, and cherish that word implanted in you which can bring salvation to your souls.22 Only you must be honest with yourselves; you are to live by the word, not content merely to listen to it.23 One who listens to the word without living by it is like a man who sees, in a mirror, the face he was born with;24 he looks at himself, and away he goes, never giving another thought to the man he saw there.25 Whereas one who gazes into that perfect law, which is the law of freedom, and dwells on the sight of it, does not forget its message; he finds something to do, and does it, and his doing of it wins him a blessing.

James 1:21-25

We’ll post a schedule for the weekend by Friday. The Obligation to attend Mass is still dispensed during Hurricane Recovery – for obvious reasons. Stay holy. +

Monday 8am Mass – Cancelled


Due to the remarkably slow movement of Hurricane Ida, and the parish-wide curfew on travel, the Monday morning Mass is canceled. We will resume public Masses on Tuesday morning. +

8 AM Mass Only

Ida Arrival

Considering the larger storm and the faster track – the 10 AM and Noon (as well as the 6 PM) Masses are cancelled.

The obligation to attend Mass is dispensed, the Obligation to keep the day holy remains. We’ll live stream the 8AM, the Cathedral is going to live stream the 11 AM Mass, and of course, many churches will be live streaming Masses.

Time to hunker down and pray. 🙏🏻
