“It is said, the salvation or loss of thousands of souls can depend on the fidelity of a single priest.”  All are welcome and encouraged to join us as we meet weekly to participate in a Marian Movement of Priests Prayer Cenacle in which we pray for priests, for their sanctification and constant growth in holiness and virtue, for seminarians, as well as for future vocations to the priesthood.  In addition, our group mails out greeting cards to priests serving in the Archdiocese, to express our appreciation and thanks for their dedication and self-sacrificing efforts in serving us through their priesthood, and to seminarians, as a means of encouragement and support.  Please join us for prayers on Wednesday mornings in Church after the 9AM Mass.

Tuesday Morning Scriptural Rosary Group

Cindy Garrett   985-892-6381
As Pope St. John XXIII has said, “The Rosary is a magnificent and universal prayer for the needs of the Church, the nations and the entire world”.  Please join us in Church immediately following the 9AM Mass each Tuesday morning as our group gathers together to pray the scriptural rosary and other intercessory prayers.  The scriptural rosary combines the recitation of the rosary with different scripture passages which are read before each Hail Mary.  This rosary meditation offers a deeper contemplation of the life of Christ.  “Among all the devotions approved by the Church none has been so favored by so many miracles as the devotion of the Most Holy Rosary”, Pope Pius IX.
