The Evangelization Door to Door Ministry goes out into the community with a three-fold approach of love, service, and prayer which we as a parish offer to our neighbors. Our door to door outings for the year 2018 are scheduled for the following Saturdays. All parishioners are invited to join us.
April 18th and May 16th dates have been cancelled.
We meet at the Adoration Chapel at 10:30 AM. Please call 504-305-2824 and leave your name and phone number, if you would to join us on any of the above dates.
We also invite you to adopt your block, using this concept you would partner with another neighbor/parishioner to invite neighbors to church and/or parish activities. Call if you are interested in either of these evangelization opportunities to serve the parish.
New Life Prayer Group will not meet until May.
Meetings contain praise & worship, brief preaching, and invitation to respond and receive prayer for spiritual, emotional, & physical healing. It is NOT Mass. It is an opportunity mid-week to experience the Lord, and it’s only an 1 hour. All ages are welcome.
Registration for Elementary Catechesis for the 2019-2020 school year is ongoing! Elementary Catechesis is our Parish Religious Education program for children in grades Kindergarten-5th Grade. All children who are not in Catholic school are invited and encouraged to attend, including and especially those who have already received their First Communion.
2 Important Changes:
1. Starting in August 2019, Elementary Catechesis will no longer be on the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (SEAS) Site. Catechesis will also be moving to the Divine Mercy Church Site into the new school buildings!
2. We just held our first Catechesis session on Tuesday, September 3rd, where we gathered together as a community for Mass at 6:30 PM, followed by showing the families where we will be gathering for the Catechesis sessions this year. For those who were unable to make it on September 3rd, that's okay! Please join us on Tuesday, September 10th. It is not too late to sign up!
We will be meeting at the 2-story school building in the back behind the Church starting on September 10th. There will be a few adults and signs there to guide you all to where you need to go. All classes will be held in the 2-story building.
Adults and teens, including parents and relatives of the children attending Catechesis, are invited and encouraged to serve and volunteer.
For more information and to register, or if you would like to volunteer, go to the Elementary Catechesis page. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please call the office and ask to speak with Jacques Delouche, or you may e-mail Jacques.
Are you currently interested or desiring to become baptized? Were you baptized in a different Christian faith, but are now desiring to join the Catholic Church? Have you already been baptized as a Catholic, but have not received First Communion and/or Confirmation? Are you interested in asking more questions about the Catholic faith, or wanting to speak with one of us?
If this applies to you, then please come join us on the RCIA Journey and Process! Please feel free to call the church office, or e-mail Jacques Delouche. You may also pick up a form in the Narthex, or download one from the website as well. For more information or to get a form, please click here.
Special Note: Due to the New Orleans Saints opening game taking place on Monday, September 9th, we will be meeting instead on Wednesday, September 11th, at 7:00 PM, at Divine Mercy Church.
All RCIA sessions following the first one will still be on Monday evenings in the Parish Community
Center, starting September 16th, from 7:00-8:30 PM.
Spanish RCIA will be meeting still on Thursday evenings, starting on September 12th.
If you are unable to make the first RCIA session, but you are still and desire to join the Catholic Church and/or receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, please contact us as soon as possible and join us for the next session!
If Mondays (or Thursdays) do not work, but you are still interested, this is very flexible and we are willing to meet with you on other days and times that are preferable and still offer opportunities for your faith growth. Please contact the Church and again, ask to speak with Jacques Delouche so we can set up a time and get this process started.
