Church Upgrades Carpet

I hope everyone has noticed the new carpet that now extends underneath the pews in Church. I hope you agree, with me, that this is so much nicer looking than the ugly concrete that was there before. While we didn’t make what we usually do at the Fair I used some of the profits to put in this new carpet at a cost of around $12,000. Please see the photos below showing the before and after of the new carpet.

Who is Fr. Jerry?

Hello Parishioners of OLDP Church, Fr. Mike informed me that many of you are wondering who’s this strange priest that has been seen around the church and celebrating Mass. My name is Fr. Jerry Daniels. 

I was ordained in May 2001 for the Diocese of Jackson MS and moved here from serving in the Diocese of Knoxville Tennessee for the past three years to begin a new assignment as full time chaplain at the Archdiocese Retreat Center (formerly the Cenacle) in Metairie. 

I will be living in residence at OLDP and helping Fr. Mike out from time to time by celebrating Mass here at OLDP when my schedule permits. I look forward to meeting you at some point, although I will remember your face, I may ask your name 1000 times, be patient with me because there is only one of me and hundreds of you.

WHAT IF YOU MET AN APOSTLE??

If you bumped into an Apostle, and you wanted to know about this Jesus, this Christ; what might it be like. Well you can imagine it if you like. Go to UNRAVELING THE FAITH. In this week’s posting, Earl Gervais, our DRE, takes us into the Didache. The writings that our Church Scholars, and Pope Francis, tell us is as close to the Apostles as we could get. Take some time, and walk with the Early Church Fathers, let your soul and your spirit take you to the beginning.
